Event Details

This new studio program is designed for beginner and intermediate artists who wish to paint with greater freedom and become more expressive.

Under the guidance of professional artist and instructor Dominik Modlinski, this two-day workshop is intended to hone students’ drawing and painting skills and to expand their creative language. Emphasis will be on risk-taking, abstract design, and mark-making – all three necessary components to take one’s work to the next level and create a unique creative signature.

Students will begin this artistic adventure while examining the dynamic power of composition and color . Working from a photo reference, participants will create drawing thumbnail sketches focusing on key areas including light and dark values, edges and lines as a warm-up to composing a dynamic composition. One of these “thumbnails” will be used as the basis for concept development, which will ultimately become a final drawing, and finally, a larger canvas or panel.

Modlinski will introduce students to a foundational structure of using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest. The aim of this workshop is to inspire students to compose artwork based on strong colour contrast principals which are carried diligently throughout creative process resulting in bold and colorful works of art. Students are free to apply the techniques learned in this studio to their own, personal style of painting. This workshop is intended for both oil and acrylic mediums.
