ATELIER: Channeling Van Gogh: Add Passion to your Paintings


Ages: 18 - No Limit

Ability: Intermediate Advanced

Expertise: Painting, Specialty Workshops

Dena Peterson recently worked as a painter and animator on the Oscar nominated best animated feature film, Loving Vincent. In this workshop, Dena will share what she learned as she studied and painted scenes for the film in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. Students will spend time studying some of Van Gogh's work and his journey to become one of history's most unique artists. Workshop will include instructor lecture and demonstrations, and time for students to paint. Students will choose their reference photos from which to paint, with help from Dena as needed, and will sketch out their "plan" for the painting on paper, doing thumbnail value studies and "pattern" drawings. On the last day, she will assist each student in painting their chosen subject matter in a similar way, with an emphasis on adding color, line, and texture to bring new life and passion to their paintings.
