Medium: All media

Level: All Levels

5-Day Studio Class

When you have outgrown the basics and the old “should” and “should nots” of painting, then you are ready for Skip’s Not-So-Basic-Basics. With fifty years experience in guiding artists to their most authentic, personal expression, Skip Lawrence knows exactly how to get you there, too. Your range of choices in your paintings increase by quantum leaps, once you add these tools to your design vocabulary. These Not-So-Basic-Basics give you the creative confidence to break the old rules and make art decisions that truly express YOU. It IS all about you!

If you have never taken a workshop with Skip, this is the perfect way to become familiar with his design language and art philosophy. If you have studied with Skip once or a dozen times, these lessons and exercises become an ongoing revelation, as your art process matures and evolves.

This is a structured class appropriate for all levels and media.

Skip Lawrence is an articulate teacher who brings warmth and humor to his classes. He is a chief contributor and editor for the exciting instructional magazine, The Palette, has written articles for many publications, and is the author of books and painting videos.
