 Course Description

“Taking It One Step Further” builds on the foundation of the successful workshop “Painting From The Inside Out”. Sometimes, as painters the work we do just doesn’t make it, or just isn’t right. The painting doesn’t have the magic or sparkle we intended. “Taking It One Step Further” is about corrections, responding to the actual, and making it right. This is an intensive and vigorous two day workshop. Wayne Boucher works one on one with each artist and leads a group critique daily to provide a forum for constructive evaluation and progress. 

 Also, artists will be asked to express an idea through their choice of painting medium. Participants will be asked to explore approaches to painting and presentation, use of materials, tools, critical thinking, manners and methods of expression and signification, editing and processes of application in formulating meaning through paint.

The objective of the workshop, through preliminary explorations and studies is to create a responsive dialogue between the artist and their paintings in bringing essential elements of signification and process into a final work(s). Participants are encouraged to bring a work that didn’t quite make it.

 Testimonial

I cannot thank you enough for opening your studio doors and letting us have 4 days of you.   The sharing of your experience and personal painting process; painting tips, techniques and tricks; one-on-one attention and group critiques were so extremely helpful to me.  The workshop was exactly what we were looking for and much more!!!
