Ken will discuss strategies for creating
better artworks with a variety of common and
creative tools. The workshop will focus the
strategies for making better paintings,
going to new places in your work and how to
make fine art. Much
attention will be given to improving your
own artworks and career.
Ken will demonstrate
painting using oil and pastel. He will
discuss the idea of making strong starts and
keeping the way open for more interesting
and dramatic finishes. Ken is a very
hands-on teacher, so there will be some
collaboration if you are open to it.
In addition to making art
works, Ken will talk about business and
promotion, which are necessary to be a
successful artist in the marketplace.
There will be serious discussions, laughs,
and your questions. We will
all come away with new tools to take your
art to the next level.
Attendees are invited to bring whatever
they wish to paint with and work on.
Bring works to start, works in progress, and
finished works to evaluate. There will be a
lot of conversation about the mental aspects
of making good art by design and experiment.
The mental aspect is the quickest way to
get the breakthroughs to the next big
success in your art. Ken will bring some
finished works to share with the group.
