NEW! Peter Doig Workshop with Andrea Mossop
Sunday November 16th
Internationally renowned artist, Peter Doig creates contemporary narratives with interesting juxtapositions of figure and landscape using fluid shapes and rich dramatic colour counterpointed by dramatically contrasted black. A relaxed fun approach to a fresh vision. Reviving the art of painting, Doig carries forward techniques of Canadians David Milne and James Wilson Morrice. Gauguin inspires Doig’s use of bold bright colours. For his spare, expressive arrangement of space, Doig looks to American realists, Edward Hopper, Milton Avery. Beginner to Advanced.

The focus is to build perception skills and hand-eye co-ordination, because all drawing is an active way of SEEING.
Are so surprisingly expensive.
Evil expensive. Spend $100 and get a VCR ( used if need be ) and really cheap running shoes. Tape the cooking shows on KQED and KRON, run around your neighborhood until dizzy. Actually go to all the advertised farmers markets. Walk everything and examine everything. Go to Cala, Rainbow, compare produce...
And keep a little note book! Make notes. galore. from the tv at the markets, numbers, addresses, suppliers. Buy used restaurant sauce pans and copper clad, steel etc stuff! It's cheap used and you can always give/ throw it away.
Find a gas stove and occasionally cook on an electric range! Live life!
