Cape Cod Museum of Art, 60 Hope Ln, Dennis, MA 02638, USA

In the CCMoA exhibit The Hans Hofmann Legacy: Creative Diversity, the museum showed how the artist’s theory of push/pull shaped a generation of painters. Hofmann’s influence continues with this course designed by Laura Shabott. She is considered a third generation Hofmann student through her training at Berta Walker Gallery and through course work with artist Robert Henry who studied with the master as a teenager.

The two-day course begins with one hour of figure drawing using charcoal on paper. Then, the group will make figure paintings from a model, or work directly from a still life arrangement, to gain a deeper understanding of how paint creates dimension and expression on the canvas. On day two, participants will begin with a warm-up of figure drawings and move right into painting. There will be affirming and encouraging critiques throughout the course with art history vignettes after lunch. People of all levels of experience are welcome.

Hans Hofmann is considered one of the most important teachers and painters of the twentieth century. His push/pull theory influenced students who went on to become great artists, many of whom were on exhibit in The Hans Hofmann Legacy: Creative Diversity at the Cape Cod Museum of Art this past winter. Through her studies with painter Robert Henry, and as a former gallery assistant at Berta Walker Gallery, Shabott learned of Hofmann’s push/pull theory and embraces it in her paintings and drawings.

Your two-day painting workshop with artist Laura Shabott begins with one hour of figure drawing and then you will make paintings that demonstrates your understanding of the theory of Hofmann’s push/pull for the remainder of the class. Day two, we will work from a different model beginning with a warm-up of figure drawings and moving right into painting. There will be affirming and encouraging critiques throughout the course.

Cost: $140 to $135. see website
