VA55 Channeling Van Gogh: How to Add Passion to your Paintings
Colorado Springs artist Dena Peterson worked as a painter/animator on the film, “Loving Vincent.” She will share what she learned as she painted scenes for the film in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. In the first session, Peterson will discuss the history of Van Gogh and his work, then briefly demonstrate her approach to painting with the inspiration of his style. The next day, she’ll assist students in painting their own chosen subject matter in a similar way, with an emphasis on adding bold color, line, and impasto texture to bring new life to their work. Some experience in medium required.
