Big Fat Art with Jane Davies, September 23–25

Big Fat Art with Jane Davies, September 23–25



THIS POPULAR WORKSHOP IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Please add your name to the WAITING LIST and we will alert you if a spot becomes available. Please see cancellation policy below.

Big Fat Art is a state of mind rather than a specific kind of art.  It is all about loosening up and getting past the thinking/evaluating zone and into the creative spontaneous one, where you can be freely expressive. 

We start Big Fat Art on big fat cheap paper (18”x24”), with process-oriented exercises using inexpensive paints and drawing materials.  This generates loads of works-in-process, which we then use as playgrounds for layering paint, drawing, and collage, and expanding the visual vocabulary. After dozens of expressive and exploratory pieces, we work on bigger, better paper, maintaining spontaneity, but working on them longer and slowing down the process.

This workshop gives you the tools to get un-stuck by focusing on process, working in multiples, and having more fun.  You can apply this playful approach to your art, whether big fat, teeny tiny, or in between.

A student supply list will be emailed to students prior to class.

Please call Port Townsend School of the Arts at (360)344-4479 for accommodation information.
