Painters’ Forum with Rob Pollien: Summer 2021

September 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

July 9, August 13, September 10 and October 8, from 1 to 3 pm (ET), on Zoom

Four oil or acrylic painting projects over four months with demonstrations, lectures, an online forum, discussion, and critiques! The projects will begin with palette management and color mixing exercises and progress through a series of color-related painting problems. The work of Albers, Itten, and Zorn will be referenced, examined, and incorporated in our study. This course is for experienced painters wishing to improve their control and understanding of form, composition, structure, color, and color mixing. The Forum meets the 2nd Friday of each month, July through October.

Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres Farm, and the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts. He has also been awarded the Maine Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship for painting.
