Paint, draw, collage from a model using the figurative lens of artist Tony Vevers. Lecture, active artmaking, critique, and a final all-classes critique.

Tony Vevers (1926 – 2008) was a central figure in the Provincetown art community who made lyrical expressionist paintings in the 1950’s and 60’s. By working from a model with guided exercises, you will learn how to make compelling compositions on a two-dimensional surface with subject matter (the model in a chosen environment) and color as your primary focus.

We begin with a PowerPoint presentation with works by Tony Vevers. When the model arrives on ZOOM, we continue with two hours of drawing/painting/collage with a final half hour of empowering critique. You will leave with original artwork, knowledge about figurative expression in Provincetown, and a day well spent with other artists working from the comfort of your own environment. Suggested reading from PAAM store: Pioneers from Provincetown: The Roots of Figurative Expression and Tony Vevers; Retrospective.

This is Session 2 of a 3-Part Series. Read about Session 1: Artmaking Through the Eyes of Blanche Lazzell here and Session 3: Artmaking Through the Eyes of Helen Frankenthaler here. There is an all-classes ZOOM critique March 11, 3-5pm.
