Group Critique with Neysa Grassi & Bruce Samuelson (ONLINE) IN 747NB

$95

with Neysa Grassi

Calendar Next session starts Mar 6, 2021 at 9 am

Feeling isolated in your studio?  Unsure of your next step?  A group critique is an excellent means of both dispelling feelings of artistic isolation or uncertainty and finding inspiration in the ideas and artwork of others in a supportive environment. 

Join acclaimed artists and PAFA faculty Neysa Grassi and Bruce Samuelson for supportive, non-judgmental feedback on your artwork while helping you to dispel feelings of self-criticism or discouragement.  Learn to perceive doubt as a tantalizing entry for creative investigation rather than a destructive force. 

Each particpant will receive a 30 minute critique via Zoom beginning at 9 a.m.  Particants will receive instructions on uploading 5 - 6 artworks (inlcuding in-progress work) to Slideroom in advance.

Register by:  March 1 (space is limited to 8 participants)

Master Class with Ying Li: A Picture Journey of Space, Paint & Vision

$395

with Ying Li

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 12, 2021 at 10 am

Discover how your surrounding studio, living, and outdoor spaces can become inspiring subjects for experimentation in your painting practice. Combine observation with imagination, memory, and improvisation to explore how an objective image can be transformed into a personal statement through the process of painting. Instruction will address the individual development of style, theme, metaphorical meaning, and expression through representational and abstract approaches. Students may work in their choice of oil, acrylic, watercolor, or pastels.

Class instruction will be conducted through a combination of Zoom and Padlet, the free online message/image board, and will include one-on-one discussions, group critiques, and PowerPoint presentations examining works of old masters and contemporary artists. Open to abstract and representational artists of all levels.

Born in Beijing, China, Ying Li graduated from the Anhui Teachers University (1974-77) where she taught 1977-83. She immigrated to the United States in 1983 and received an MFA from Parsons School of Design, New York, in 1987. As a painter, Li is known for her highly energetic, on-site landscapes that simultaneously describe direct visual experience and pure abstraction. Her uncompromising sense of personal vision combined with complete abandon in the possibilities of paint make her work style the epitome of painterliness. Ying Li lives and works in New York City and Haverford, PA, where she is currently the Phlyssa Koshland Professor of Fine Arts at Haverford College.   She is represented by Pamela Salisbury Gallery, Hudson, NY and Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia.  View the artist’s work at www.yinglistudio.com.
