Fall is here and winter is coming. For many artists along the peninsula, it is the most prolific time of the year. The busy days of the tourist season are fewer and farther between, allowing time to hunker down in the studio to experiment, determine a new direction, and produce a body of work. For Peninsula School of Art, the quiet season brings community partners into our studios through outreach programming, as well as artists interested in pursuing longer-term and more self-defined projects; complementing our summer workshop offerings.
This coming February and May, PenArt is excited to offer two-week studio intensives in the areas of painting and drawing. These experiences are designed for more advanced artists in search of the time, space, and community needed to develop a body of work while participating in a creative dialogue with peers and established faculty. Guest faculty will visit twice each week, leading lectures, discussions, and readings on relevant art-making topics, as well as individual and group critiques. The remaining days will be dedicated to independent studio activity.
Set aside time this season to dive into your artistic practice at PenArt. Accelerate your progress as you explore and implement new ideas alongside artists of varying backgrounds and approaches to art making. Our studio intensives schedule and featured faculty are listed below. Stay tuned for more details on our website under the Workshops tab.
