All painters need to reinvigorate their creativity, from time to time, when our images become stale or rote. One way to do so is to look freshly at things by breaking down what we see into its basic, abstract elements: value, line, composition, and color. Interiors are an ideal subject to present seminal exercises designed to develop our creativity and expand our composition ideas and color palettes. Students will learn to reopen the doors to authenticity and grow as an artist. Be prepared to be challenged artistically, develop insights, and have fun. Open to all painters.

Each session will include a presentation/demonstration, followed by a series of painting exercises and instructional review of student work. A materials list will be supplied at registration. Philip will be painting in oil color.

Philip Frey is not only an inspiringly dynamic artist and but a patient and insightful teacher. His workshop transformed the way I look at the world and how I now approach the ever daunting blank canvas….which is now with confident intention! Having access to and learning from an artist of his caliber is truly a gift.

I have taken several of Philip’s workshops and initially thought that they would be redundant but I was wrong. His different approaches to plein air, figure drawing and still life kept each fresh and challenging. I enjoyed each one and learned new concepts as well as reviewing old ones.
