Academy Mask Policy – Summer 2021
Any student under the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their camp/class. For students who are 18+, masks will be optional, but recommended. Any staff or crew that has been vaccinated will not be required to wear a mask. If they have not been vaccinated, they will be required to wear a mask.
In this 2-Day workshop, we will explore ideas to kick start your larger abstract paintings! With texture, color and mark-making, you will learn how to add depth and unique meaning to your work by creating interesting surfaces– then building from there. Various exercises will help strengthen your abstract compositions with an emphasis on your individual goals & artistic expression. We will be working on stretched canvas or panels (larger sizes: 20×20– up to-40x40-your choice of sizes to work on). We will also be doing some fun, experimental exercises on paper. There will be daily demonstrations, individual instruction and studio painting time each day. Bring your sense of adventure and play!
Times: 9:30am – 4:00 pm, with 1 hour lunch break

Lisa Boardwine, BWS, VWS, Artist’s Statement:
In the tradition of the Abstract Expressionists, my work stems from a subconscious and intuitive process. I record my energy and passions, and the works are truly an expression of my soul and experiences. Essential to the language of my painting are the layering of textures, marks and color to create a history of surface. I build up and tear down, excavating to recreate a sense of the mysterious, through many layers of media. In this process, I cherish the freedom I have found to experiment, express, and explore the world through my work.
