Narrative Abstraction:
The Confluence of Imagery and Materials 


Lisa P.jpg

An exploratory workshop using multiple mediums and drawing materials. Course materials will include R&F pigment sticks, oil paint, cold wax, drawing materials, and more. 


Each day, Lisa will provide demonstrations on techniques, including layering, excavating, monoprinting, glazing, color mixing, texture, mark making, and editing. Students will receive individualized attention with the aim of expanding their own artistic practice. The class will focus on content, how to see, and how to move work forward.

Conversations and presentations around contemporary art will take place each day. Some painting experience is suggested.

Along with the required materials for this class, a writing journal may be useful, enabling students to use their words as touchstones to generating imagery.

Lisa Pressman is a model of what a teacher can bring to the table for students. I have seen her teach, and I’m in awe of her ability to bring out the best. It also says a great deal that other teachers take her workshops.
