THE STRUCTURED ACCIDENTAllison Miller5-Day Intensive5 sessions >>|Monday, January 14- Friday January 18Monday, March 18- Friday March 22Monday, June 3- Friday June 89am–5pm, Fort Mason Campus, Suite 27, $750
This advanced painting workshop provides a unique opportunity to open up your practice and push yourself to experiment. Driven by risk-taking and chance, each painting is started with a formal, structural or linguistic parameter and from there, the direction up to you. Multiple paintings are worked on each day, along with daily group critiques and individual discussions which address the formal and conceptual concerns that emerge from this spontaneous way of working.
