Channeling Vision: Pattern & Flow
Full Day Workshop with Jonathan Solter

 

 

Take a journey through Jonathan Solter’s artistic process in his painting workshop, Channeling Vision: Patterns & Flow. In this art quest, explore your vision and how to translate from mind to canvas through various techniques. Class will begin with a slideshow and talk about Jonathan’s visions, inspirations and artistic offerings centering around various patterns and flow. He will take aesthetics from nature, architecture and more combining different patterns and flow to create an abstract visionary painting.

 

 

During the creation of this piece Jonathan will be teaching you techniques such as sketching forms with paint, wild style graffiti forms, using fractals, glazing and use of spray paint and stencils and how they can be combined to create a unique vision. An opportunity to dive into your own artistic creation follows, starting with a grey scale foundation/design where we manifest your ideas from mind to canvas. Color glazing and more will have you leaving the workshop with a masterpiece!
