Do you have moments of complete frustration with your work? We all do.

In this course Melinda will help you to embrace those moments and learn to work with the idea of chaos and "the uglies" in your paintings for as long as possible in order to achieve rich work with history and lasting interest.   Additionally, we will focus on the contrast of accidents and intentions in our work. These two opposites can create dynamic energy and memorable work. Their combination will also make the difference between a “complete painting” and an unfinished piece.

Exploration of the use of color in figurative work and as a tool to enhance abstraction will also be addressed.Having taught oil painting for over 21 years to students around the globe, Melinda takes particular care to interact with each student individually to help them discover their own voice and to work on their individual goals. Join us for this fast-paced workshop as we embrace chaos and make history together!

**This workshop is for intermediate to advanced level students. Oil paint or Acrylic paint is acceptable. Some cold wax techniques will be discussed, however, this is not a cold wax specific course.

MEET MELINDA COOTSONA

Screen Shot 2018-08-17 at 11.02.47 PM

Melinda Cootsona is a figurative painter in Northern California. Greatly influenced by the Bay Area artistic tradition, her paintings focus on the strength of the female figure. The paintings are created with layers of oil paint, applied and then scraped away revealing figures that fill the canvas in varying poses of contemplation or reflection in abstracted surroundings. Whether in a soft or harsh surrounding, the strength of the female figure is primary.

Melinda has been included in exhibitions at the Bakersfield Museum of Art and the Triton Museum in California, The San Francisco Art Market, The Coos Bay Museum of Art in Oregon, and Art Basel Miami, as well as many group and solo shows throughout the U.S.

Cootsona received her BA from the California College of the Arts. Her work can be found in collections in the United States, Europe, Australia, and China.
