Jenny Doh ::: Oil Painting Bootcamp

January 12-13, 2018

Studio-Jenny-Doh-Oils.jpg

In this workshop, I will teach the basic fundamentals for preparing and executing alla prima (wet-on-wet, single-session work) still life oil paintings using actual objects from life and/or photos references of subjects.

DAY ONE
On the first day, we will discuss palette organization, paintbrush organization, substrate preparation, life composition, and value recognition, and artistic discipline. We will also look at paintings from some of my favorite oil painters and discuss their works in terms of composition, value and color. I will do a painting demonstration on gessobord to help participants complete a small non-complex still life oil painting.

DAY TWO
On the second day, we will embark on a slightly larger work on paper with a slightly more complex composition/reference, using the fundamentals that were discussed on day one. Each participant will approach her/his work area in a manner where they are putting to practice all that was discussed on the first day.

For your convenience, I will provide all oil paints, medium, palette paper, and substrates for all participants. This will help you use and understand my favorite tools and materials before you make the investment into buying everything.  A small list of requirements will be sent after registration, and closer to the date of the workshop.

Erin Faith Allen ::: Transfer-mation (collage on canvas)

In this workshop we bring inspirational photos into evocatively evolved versions of themselves. Pushing boundaries and implementing multiple image transfer techniques, we will take your creativity to places you couldn't imagine if you tried. Sourcing material from your personal image collection that brings forward sentiment and sensation, you will combine transfer processes with mixed media techniques for layering and transformation on your canvas..

Are you into visual journaling? I will also be teaching an art journal variation of this workshop on April 6-7 in my studio in Houston. Scroll down for details.

self as muse

Erin Faith Allen ::: Self As Muse (mixed media art journal)

February 16-17, 2019

In this workshop you will look to your self as your most powerful muse, and experience a number of self-portrait techniques and processes to guide you ever deeper into the truth of who you are. You do not need to be an expert painter or artist for this workshop - and we will not be looking for perfectionism in our renderings.

Instead, we will seek authentic and raw explorations for an output that is liberating and gives you permission to be - and express freely - all that you truly know yourself to be. Perhaps you will uncover new truths beside the layers of collage and paint that we will adventure through in our time together.

Are you interested in taking this workshop with canvas as your substrate? I'll be teaching a variation of this workshop on May 18-19 in my Houston studio. Scroll down for details!

Erin Faith Allen ::: DEEPER (with canvas)

March 2-3, 2019

You have a whole world inside you. It's a unique, rich inner landscape that only you can access, adventure into, and express.

It's all yours. And sometimes, when the world outside of you feels tired, overwhelming, and draining .... you feel it calling.

Maybe it's a story you are longing to tell. Maybe it's a desire to carve space for just you, to sit and create in the moment, documenting your feelings and your place in the world. Maybe it's the memories of a place, or a chapter of history. Maybe it's the story of your grandmother or grandfather's life. Maybe it's a story of the collective, or a cause. Maybe it's an allegory, or your own mythology. 

In order to express yourself with purpose, from that raw and unbridled place within, you need to roll around in your own guts for a little while, and learn how to harvest your truth from places deeeeeeeep within.

Join me in this two-day mixed media art journaling workshop utilizing a variety of expressive techniques, and based on my online workshop DEEPER. (You can read more details by clicking that pink link).

I'll be teaching a variation of DEEPER, using art journaling as our medium of choice, on November 3-4, 2018 in Houston. Scroll up to 2018 dates for details.

Erin Faith Allen ::: Drawn In (art journal)

August 24-25, 2019 

'I can't draw' is the number one thing I hear when people express their artistic longings.  But ... I promise you ... you can!  In this workshop we will build upon the basic technique of drawing to fill up your canvas with layered collages, and dynamic creative outpourings.

All you need to dive in and flourish in this workshop (and life, am I right?) is a willingness to freefall, and a desire to give up any need to control outcome - or be perfect in your approaches and the art that you create. By leaning deep within, you'll draw forth your own unique truths that will create an aesthetic uniquely your own.

Would you like to experience this workshop using canvas as your substrate? I'm teaching it in my Houston studio on December 1-2, 2018. Scroll up for details.
