IN MORE DETAIL In this mixed media painting class students are guided through the ideas and process of Jesse Reno through a series of simple open ended instructions. The instructions are basic and the timing is quick for each step, this keeps things moving and fresh. The instruction will engage a variety of techniques using, brushes, marking tools, finger painting, closed eyes, continuous line, etc…Students will learn to understand that any move can be a good move as long as your moving and thinking. They will see that as long as they think in a basic compositional sense things come together in time with little stress. This is a great introduction to ideas and techniques for all skill levels. It's a great class for people who get stuck, don’t know what to paint, or those who just want to learn new open techniques to expand their own process. As in all my classes, the idea is not what you paint but why and how. By following through with a   random list of instructions and techniques, we learn to see how quick we can move when we are free, and how great accidents can be. It easier to make 7 mistakes than 1 perfect plan.  This class is organized in such a way that I give an instruction and then students are left to choose placement, likes and dislikes specific to their own works. So we all start with the same ideas and make them our own by choosing how to utilize or interpret them. Working quickly and freely we learn to see what we have done rather than what we intended to do which is quite often far more interesting then what we had first imagined. This is class is part guide, part lecture, very hands on and full of fun and stimulating ideas for artists of any level. Cost for the one day workshop is $150 for CAM members and $175 for non-members.  Registration ends June 11, 2016.  For online registration visit or contact the Art Education Dept. at (541) 267-3901.
