Loosen Up! – Painting Workshop

October 23 & 24, 2021 (10:30am – 3:30pm)

$255 for non-members ∙ $210 for members

In this workshop students will learn how to loosen up and apply their paint in a gestural, painterly manner.

Instructor Souby Boski will walk students through the techniques and observations on what it takes to “loosen-up” your paintings. Nearly all of these tips have a common denominator–simplification. The more you simplify what you do, the more it frees your mind to concentrate on staying loose.

Students will practice using bigger brushes, more paint and working faster. We will take color to new unexpected places by working with various colors and departing from realism.

Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provided upon registration.

about the instructor

Since 2004, Souby Boski has taught painting classes and workshops in CT, MA and FL. Over the years, she was an adjunct professor of Art at Naugatuck Valley Community College and taught Art in the Connecticut public school system and Adult Education programs.

Souby holds a BA in Art Education from Stetson University and a MALS in Art from Wesleyan University. She studied painting with nationally recognized artists and teachers: Eric Aho, Ira Barkoff, Lois Dodd and Ruth Miller.

“My goal is to engage, challenge and motivate my students. I strive to create an environment where students not only explore, learn, solve problems, create, collaborate, but also truly enjoy what they are doing.”
