WORKSHOPS:

 

 

Stand Up To Paint Abstracts!

 

 

1-60-x-40-painting-walter-oneill

Oil Painting by Walter O’Neill

 

 

 

Paint in a vertical format in this workshop by hanging your canvas on the wall. This ensures that you use your entire body in the process of painting instead of only using your hand and wrist. Working on large canvases with big brushes, students explore composition, mark making, personal symbols, and layering. Re-energize your painting by being completely intuitive and spontaneous.  Whether your style is loud and energizing or calm and relaxed, learn to trust your own artistic urges while taking risks to create powerful art. This 2-day atelier is for expanding your reach, experimenting, and discovering. (45 minute lunch break)

Sunday / Monday, January 15 and 16
10 AM to 5 PM
Instructor: Eydi Lampasona
  Tuition: $185, Material Fee: $20

 

 

Masks: Many Faces, Many Selves

bocaartschool2-masks-by-genie-cohen

Creating masks can be an outrageously fun way to find hidden aspects of oneself. Create a mask to affirm your inner spirit or take on a new identity. Your completed mask can be worn, displayed as a work of art, or used as your private talisman. (45 minute lunch break)

“Our international art fairs are successful because we are committed to becoming part of the community’s arts scene as we continue to do with Art Palm Beach and as we did as founders of Art Miami. By partnering with local institutions and organizations to create Art Boca Raton Art Week, and involving community leaders and residents we create a unique sense of ownership by all who know how beneficial art and culture are to the city they live and work in, says Lee Ann Lester. “Working closely with Florida Atlantic University, the Research Park, the Boca Raton Museum of Art and Art School and the Mayor’s office and Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, we have created programming and events with wide appeal,” continues Lester.

 

 

 

 

Approximately 50 regional, national, and international dealers will exhibit in the custom- built 65,000 square foot exhibition hall with the entrance hallmarked by Keith Haring’s 40-foot long Pop Shop Mural 1986 presented by Castle Fitzjohns Gallery.
