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

Do you often think about coming to PAAM’s Life Drawing sessions, but stop because you don’t feel ready or inspired? This workshop is designed for you. We will go through a series of exercises designed to loosen your hand and train your eye to see the human form in a whole new way. There will be a mini art history lecture, two hours with a model and an optional peer review at the close of the workshop. Students will leave with a renewed ability to draw and a greater sense of self as an artist.
