Life in Color: Painting Workshop
Presented by Claudia Zopoaragon, teaching artist
Enjoy an afternoon of hands-on art making, inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s iconic gestural painting style. This studio class for adults connects with the masterworks on view in Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art.
The workshop begins with an overview of the exhibition, focusing on Van Gogh’s unique mark-making technique and his characteristic color motifs. Learn about his process, the materials he used, and how his style evolved throughout his artistic career.
Then, get a feel for what Van Gogh’s painting process might have been like by experimenting with oil paint on raw canvas. Create your own abstract painting inspired by small pieces of Van Gogh’s most renowned works, with a focus on the interplay between his blues and yellows. You’ll choose your composition by zooming in and taking an up-close look at the individual brush strokes, colors, and textures that come together to create Van Gogh’s larger images.
