Workshop fun and Yellow Springs Art Stoll this coming Friday!
We painted on illustration board, w.c. paper, yupo, etc, experimenting...One of the best things was the way he worked with each artist to help them 'see' a better way to design their values, composition & colors.
Fred also held 2 group critique sessions where he spoke about each piece - the strengths and weaknesses of it. He inspired confidence in his critiques, no derision or belittling. He gave inside secrets about getting into shows, framing, etc.
One of our homework assignments was to create a composition with a styrofoam coffee cup in black and white that features the coffee cup. We turned them in and he spoke to the dynamicds of each persons piece. He then assigned the same for the next night.
