We are excited to have this gifted young artist (who studied both at University of Virginia and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) offer his first workshop at BSSS. James will help you explore traditional motifs with modern tools and mediums as he does in his own figure, still life, and landscape paintings. He will emphasize the use of acrylics, the water-soluble paints that dry quickly and permanently. Many artists prefer acrylics rather than solvent-based oil colors. James will demonstrate ways to develop a rich surface and to emphasize the abstract quality in representational paintings, and he will work with you one-on-one as you explore the creative options he presents.
