The Painterly Approach—An Exploration, Oil Painting Workshop with Georganna Lenssen

2-Day Oil Painting Workshop at Chester Springs Studio, Chester County, June 17-18, 2017

The Painterly Approach—An Exploration with Georganna Lenssen 2-Day Oil Painting Workshop in Chester County Level: All levels, Limit 10 students Workshop Instructor: Georganna Lenssen Date: Saturday-Sunday, June 17-18, 2017 Time: 10am – 3pm Location: Chester Springs Studio, Historic Yellow Springs Two-Day Tuition: $110 Member, $125 Non-member In this workshop, we will explore the still life or image as a point of departure. Rather than simply responding, recording or representing that which is before them, students will be encouraged to ask themselves, and begin to understand for themselves, what is their connection to a subject, and what is its essence. We will discuss contemporary painters and approaches to painting while developing our working knowledge and visual awareness of composition, shapes, color, paint application and surface quality. Students will be challenged to be more expressive, bold and spontaneous, and to develop a visual vocabulary that best expresses their unique and individual observations. It is in this marriage of “interpretation” and “expression” that students will learn a more contemporary and liberating method of painting. Both individual and group critiques will be included. All levels welcome, although some (no matter how little) oil painting experience preferred. About Georganna Lenssen Born in Seoul, Korea, Georganna Lenssen graduated from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Awards include the Roy Lance Lauffer Memorial Prize, the Elizabeth Arramark scholarship, and the Wildlife Purchase Prize. Asian art—its deep reverence for nature and the vitality of its direct, spontaneous use of brush and ink—has strongly influenced her work. She incorporates these qualities, focusing upon gesture and movement as they express the essence and vitality of her subjects. Lenssen also teaches at the Wayne Art Center, as well as privately from her studio in Chester Springs, PA. She is represented by galleries including Red Raven Art Company in Lancaster, PA and West Branch Gallery in Stowe, VT.
