'Freedom To Explore' Workshop

With Marissa Vogl
October 23 - 25 in Charleston

In this three-day workshop, Marissa addresses why it’s important to give yourself the limitless freedom to explore different styles, paint applications, tools, and mediums (such as cold wax). Students will look at how exploration results in paintings with spontaneity and energy. 

“My work is about the journey before it is about the end result,” says Vogl. “Painting for the journey has expanded my bag of tricks. What happens when you consciously use a palette knife, a shower squeegee, and a round 14 in the same painting? Are you comfortable scraping off a large area and going back over it with one sweeping motion in a larger tool? Learning when to use each trick (that is the tricky part!) will allow you to create effortless spontaneity and evoke energy and emotion.” 

Learn why understanding various techniques, mediums, and tools is important to an intuitive and painterly style of painting. 

*Requirements: I will be working with students who have a basic understanding of oil paint, have their own portable (plein air) easel, and know how to work their equipment.
