A Workshop with Larry Moore
Monday – Friday, June 14th – June 18th
This 5-day class, taught by artist/author and the 2021 Gloucester Arts Festival Judge, Larry Moore. The workshop will push you into new territory where growth lives. Centered around the interpretation of the landscape with a focus on the principles of design and abstraction, you will be shown a system for developing your voice as an artist. The emphasis is on creative process, exploring new ways to develop a painting, inventive compositions, and new ways to think and build intent in your work. Many of the exercises in this class are found in Larry’s book on creativity, “Fishing for Elephants. Insights and exercises to inspire authentic creativity”. It’s not a requirement but a cursory read of the workbook will give you a leg up on this class… and life. Available through Amazon.com.
Larry’s goal is to help each artist find a way that works for them, whether they wish to interpret more, push their process or go fully abstract. He’s worked extensively in almost every medium so all are welcome. The class is as much a challenge for the advanced artist as it is for the beginner, no specific skill set is required since exploration is the goal. However, some understanding of color and paint handling is helpful. We start small and end big. All mediums welcome though we will be working in gouache in the beginning (the most versatile medium on the planet). Bring a sense of humor and an open mind!
Light refreshments will be provided
