The Painterly Approach—An Exploration with Georganna Lenssen
Painting Workshop, July 7-8th, 10am – 3pm, at Chester Springs Studio, Chester County.
Two-Day Workshop: The Painterly Approach
Instructor: Georganna Lenssen
Date: Saturday-Sunday, July 7-8, 2018
Time: 10am – 3pm
Location: Chester Springs Studio
In this workshop, this Saturday through Sunday, July 7-8, 2018, 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.

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.
