Realism to Abstraction: A Painting Workshop                                                                                                  

In this painting workshop we’ll look at how artists have used realism as a starting point to explore unique ways of seeing and interpreting the natural world, and to access the artists’ inner world. Working from examples and a still life, we’ll explore elements of painting that apply to both abstraction and realism: composition, interactive shapes and forms, brushwork, color and more.  Techniques, processes and the ideas behind them will be emphasized. 

Instructor: Michael Wilson

Required Materials (not supplied): Acrylic or oil paint, canvas or paper, a sketchbook, and a pencil. 

Class is limited to 10 participants


Michael Wilson has been painting and sculpting in his studio in Waltham since graduating from the SMFA in 1988. Wilson has shown in galleries in NY, CA. CO and in the Boston and Provincetown area, and is currently teaching classes at his studio. Waltham Mills Open Studios
