Contemporary masters, such as Motherwell, Vicente, Marca-Relli, Ryan, Rauschenberg and Bearden will also be introduced. Each day will provide time for studio work, discussion and critique. The first part of the workshop week consists of directed involvements. Experimentation and interpretation will be encouraged. The latter part of the week will allow for more self-directed work.

Prerequisite: Some previous drawing and painting experience is helpful but not required.
