Holistic Creativity and This Business of Art

I graduated from Kutztown University and will be returning to give a talk and share some insight with current students about being a professional artist. We’ll be discussing some practical elements necessary for becoming a working artist like social media use, website design, galleries both online and brick and mortar. More so, we’ll delve into what I call ‘Holistic Creativity’, which works to expand skill levels without killing the intuitive sense of creativity with overthinking and judgment.

workshop: Landscape Painting in the Studio/beyond the photo reference

WORKSHOP: Landscape Painting in the Studio: Beyond the Photo Reference 

This workshop will be held at Diane Hutchinson's Studio and school in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Students will learn methods and techniques to transcend the reference photo and create a painting that carries the artist's voice rather than looking like a copied photo. 

We'll discuss the value of compositional thumbnail drawings, three-grey studies, color studies, and inventing the landscape. 

Students should bring their own photo references (but I'll have some just in case...)

Price for this workshop is $160
