Artist Talk & LIVE Painting with Doug Dawson


Ages: 16 - No Limit

Ability: All

Expertise: Painting, Drawing, Specialty Workshops, ASLD Lecture

Join us for an exclusive artist talk and LIVE painting session with one of ASLD's original founders and longest standing faculty members - Doug Dawson. For this program, Doug will speak about his prolific career, influences, and artistic practice, followed by a live painting session.

"My goal is to create paintings that touch the viewer and leave them with compelling visual memories. My paintings are about feelings and moments in time. I work on the assumption that if I create a painting that moved me, there is a good chance it will move others as well."

This program is in tandem with "A Retrospective: Doug Dawson" exhibition on view at ASLD from February 16 - March 24, 2018. It is strongly encouraged participants view the onsite exhibition before the program. Please join us for the FREE artist reception on Friday, February 16 | 5:30 - 8pm.
