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
