Workshop Overview

Do you have a stack of paintings that are unwanted, unloved, unfinished, and you just can't figure out what to do next? Who doesn't? Bring them in and let's turn them into interesting new work. Through techniques like texturing, negative and positive painting, mark-making, and more, we'll rework, reinvent and revitalize your original creations. Embrace the beauty of the past as parts of the original paintings often peek through, adding intrigue and depth to the finished pieces. Walk away with 1-3 completed projects and several works in progress, giving your once-overlooked artworks a fresh and captivating revival.
