Workshops

EXPLORING ABSTRACTION WITH CHRIS GROVES

workshops  EXPLORING ABSTRACTION WITH CHRIS GROVES

These classes are an extension of the Realism to Abstraction Workshop (taught last January) and are intended to help push the artist to a more simplified or abstract method of painting. Whether trying to loosen up one's own work or wanting to paint on a more abstract level, this series of 3 workshops will cover more focused areas of interest from start to finish. One does not have to take all 3 workshops, but can pick and choose which class will be most beneficial. Those who do take all 3 workshops will be encouraged to bring the paintings created during the previous workshop to the next workshop to build upon those pieces with each additional class. The 3rd and last workshop will be a 'finish' workshop for whatever pieces the artist chooses to work on further.
Each workshop is limited to 12 students.
A materials list will be provided for each workshop.
The cost of each workshop is $375
Full payment is due upon enrollment and is non-refundable unless we can refill your spot off a waiting list or if Horton Hayes cancels this workshop, in which case all payments will be fully refunded.


I. COMPOSITION WITH SHAPES AND VALUE SCALE:
Saturday & Sunday, March 11 and 12, 2017, 10:00am to 5:00pm

This class will cover:
1. Using black and white and/or single color values to create strong compositions in your paintings.
2. The ‘pre-painting’ process. Pre-planning your paintings from selections of your subject matter and reference materials, to preparations of canvas. 3. Utilizing more than just your brush in your paintings.
We will paint mono-chromatically for both days with strong emphasis on composition, focal point and gesture of the painting.
Students should bring reference materials of what they want to paint. Reference materials should be in color.
Workshop will end with a full class critique.

II. STUDIO COLOR NOTES and RE-DEFINING DETAIL (PURE ABSTRACT)
Saturday & Sunday, May 20 and 21, 2017, 10:00am to 5:00pm

This workshop will focus on the subject of color by creating many simple Color Notes. We will then move on to taking traditional ideas of painting and re-define their meaning by painting on a more abstract level. We will encourage the artists to create pure abstract pieces. Eliminating visual detail and moving to a more abstract level of painting does not mean forgetting everything one already knows of traditional methods. We will discuss how to think differently about the elements of your painting no matter the style.
The class will cover:
1. Color Theory, color relationships to create emotion in your paintings.
2. Simplifying your palette by using a teardrop color chart to help determine solid color combinations as well as picking correct under-painting colors.
3. How to use dominant color and saturated color combinations in support of a painting's theme.
4. Exercises on how to use color in order to determine location and time of day.
5. Using Edges and Line correctly to create stronger paintings.
6. Demos and in class exercises on reductive simplification.
7. Gesture and the relationships between the most important parts of the painting.
8. Exercises in “Adjusting” Color, shape, tone and edge in order to maintain the initial intention of one's painting.
9. Focus on composition as an underlining theme of these more abstract pieces.
Students should bring reference materials of what they want to paint. Reference materials should be in color. We will spend a short amount of time outside gathering some color notes.
Class will end with a critique of what we feel works and does not work in the studies and why, and how to improve for the final pieces.

III. LESS IS MORE - STARTING AND FINISHING YOUR PAINTINGS
Saturday & Sunday, June 10 and 11, 2017, 10:00am to 5:00pm

This workshop will focus on simplifying your artistic thought process to create a larger finished painting, whether more realistic, in-between, or abstract.
The class will cover:
1. The top 10 list of essential elements of a painting and how to them into your work.
2. The enlargement process.
3. Simplifying the elements within a painting to create a stronger finish.
4. In depth talk on what the artists intention is for the final outcome, and how to maintain that intention throughout the painting process.
5. Glazing, varnish and framing.
We will use all the reference materials from the previous three workshops to create finished pieces. If you did not any of the three previous workshops, you can bring reference materials to paint from.
Workshop will end with a full class critique.
