Most artists use source photos in some capacity when they work, whether to jog their memory of a particular place and time or to record specific visual details to incorporate in later pieces. 


In this workshop students will learn to paint in a creative, personal, and expressive way using reference photographs - freeing them from copying.


Learn to dismiss the sense of obligation to show exactly what is depicted in the photo and feel free and inspired to manipulate the composition, assuring vitality and making the painting your personal creation.


Bring several canvases, reference photos, and your lunch. A suggested materials list will be provided upon registration.  TO register: info@thecommunitycenter.org


FAST and LOOSE

Oil and Acrylic Workshop with Souby Boski

All Levels 

Date: February 29th, 2020, 10am - 4pm

Location: Brookfield Craft Center, Brookfield, CT

Fee: $94 (Member Discount Available) 


This workshop is for students who want to loosen up and work with less restraint.


Using personal photographs, as reference students will work on several fast paintings. Guided towards discovering and trusting their own mark/painting statement and developing a critical eye. This is not a “how-to” class. You will be encouraged to experiment and embrace spontaneity. By combining fast, bold, loose strokes, students will engage in the “process” of the painting in the “present” rather than concentrating on the end result.


Fast paintings will be analyzed for their unique painterly style in order transfer the best qualities to larger canvases (36x36 or larger). 


In the words of the artist, KiKi Smith, “Making art is a lot about seeing what happens.”


Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provide upon registration.

Loosen UP!

Oil and Acrylic Workshop with Souby Boski

All Levels

Date: April 18th, 2020, 10am - 4pm

Location: Brookfield Craft Center, Brookfield, CT

Fee: $94.00 (Member Discount Available)


In this workshop students will learn how to loosen up and apply their paint in a gestural, painterly manner. 


Techniques and observations on what it takes to "loosen-up" your paintings. Nearly all of these tips have a common denominator - simplification. The more you simplify what you do, the more it frees your mind to concentrate on staying loose. 


Students will practice using bigger brushes, more paint and working faster. We will take color to new unexpected places by working with various colors and departing from realism. 


Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provide upon registration.
