O’Keeffe was once a beginner herself. Join us for this workshop—beginners, amateurs and those looking for a new start for their work—based on O’Keeffe’s dictum to “fill a space in a beautiful way.” Choose your medium: pastels, paint, collage. Experience lessons that O’Keeffe got from her most influential teacher (Arthur Wesley Dow) and the lessons she, herself, gave novices. This class opens up the making of art with a view toward O’Keeffe’s own perspective and practices. There is so much to consider when approaching a blank page or canvas: What to paint or draw, the composition or placement of subject matter, how to get the forms right, combining color for effect or going monochromatic, plus technique for applying the chosen media. Get started or get further guidance from an instructor who worked for O’Keeffe in 1976 and went on to study art and a museum career.
