This is a multi-disciplinary workshop for painters, writers and photographers. Though we will have a studio available for those wishing to use it, the all inclusive nature of the workshop encourages an all island, studio without walls approach.
Participants should be prepared with the materials of the medium of their choice and to share their work with the group in a personal presentation on the final day of the workshop. “I often tell prospective portrait commission subjects, if you want a good likeness of yourself have a photograph taken. What I do is different. How? Portraiture is detective work essentially.
I’m interested in your story, the trajectory of your life, how you pick up a cup of coffee, answer your phone, spending time in the kitchen with you while you fix dinner and tell me stories. I’m interested in your personal narrative and if I do my job well, your story, your personal mythology will surface in the portrait.” From the time as infants we first say “I” or “me”, we begin our story, our personal mythology. This workshop will investigate the stories of our subjects and how they traNslate through our lens and creative tools.
