4 day . Developing & Understanding the Artist's Skill Set
In this four day workshop Kenn will explain the important Skill Sets that the representational artist needs to develop and utilize. By definition, a skill is the ability to do something proficient. In general there are three primary skill set categories.
3. Personality traits/attitude (also known as soft skills)
In my earlier years of painting, just getting the gear set up and painting a scene seemed to be the only goal I had. I soon came to understand that there is more to this world of art than I knew or understood. Goals needed to be set, but before establishing goals I needed to understand and develop a series of Skill Sets. Understanding and using these Skill Sets, launched my career as a representational painter.
The first two days of this workshop will be conducted indoors, and through my lectures, demonstrations and your painting efforts, we will define the Skill Sets which are the most important. The last two days we will paint on location applying these Skill Sets to better our efforts in the field. Understanding and applying your Skill Sets will put you on a solid path towards more productive and creative works.
