High Octane: Fuel Your Figure Work With BIG Emotion

March 3 - 5, 2017

Hannon Barn, Arroyo Grande, CA

This power-packed workshop will teach participants how to read and employ expressive body language, as well as hand and/or facial gestures to add potency to their figure art. We will work with models selected for their ability to convey a sense of drama in their poses as we create our personal visual responses to a selection of universal story themes. We will look at the additional expressive power of the marks you choose to make as well as the color palette you select for your artworks.

Have you always wanted to learn how to move your preliminary figure studies or notations into full-blown artworks that employ the figure as your narrative vehicle? Then this is YOUR class! Joanne has boundless enthusiasm to motivate you, plenty of university teaching experience to draw upon, and lots of original ideas, tools, and techniques to share.

This workshop was also held on April 22–24, 2016 at the Hannon Barn in Arroyo Grande, CA.
