Join artist Cal Rice in this two day intensive workshop focusing on surrealist drawing and painting. Starting with the technique of “automatic drawing” we will explore the ways in which artists can tap into the subconscious to create unconventional and imaginative imagery. The drawings created on day one of the workshop will then serve as reference for our paintings on day two. During this second day we will concentrate on how traditional painting skills can be altered and modified to yield unorthodox results. Throughout this workshop Cal will also explain the unique ways he applies these very techniques to his own painting practice.

While we will be touching on a handful of formal skills this workshop is primarily geared toward fostering a creative mindset and is perfect for artists of all levels!
