Three-day workshop exploring premier coup oil painting

July  19 – 21    9-4

fee:  $400


class size limited to 12 participants

Through painting sessions, demos and critiques, Duane Keiser will lead a challenging three-day workshop on premier coup oil painting. Premier coup, or “first strike,” is a painting done with the intent of finishing it in one sitting. Like Jazz, premier coup can be wonderfully improvisational while also requiring a high degree of precision and control. Duane will share his various strategies, techniques and ways of thinking about the painterly exploration of a subject within the confines of a moment. Included in this workshop will be a talk on being a painter in the digital age– Keiser’s unique take on the current and future state of the internet, social media and the business of art.
