Abstracting the Figure

More about the Workshop

Only 5 spaces left!

Have you ever wanted to paint the figure but you are not confident about anatomy?

When you are abstracting the figure you don’t have to worry about anatomy but you are more concerned about shapes, value and color.  You are really already using what you know but putting it together in a different way. This is the exciting part of abstracting the figure.

Being open to create in a serious yet playful way opens doors into the depth of your creativity.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to take the essence of the figure and present it in a way that is sensual and thought provoking.
  • How to create a powerful figure painting through color
  • The importance of neutrals and how to create exciting quiet colors

Each artist will have their own table.

Workshop limited to 10 Artists

This workshop will fill fast so sign up now!


Held at Gwen Fox’s private Art Sanctuary in Taos, New Mexico. Her 100-year-old adobe home is the perfect environment to inspire and renew your creativity.

There will be private critiques that empower, glorious breakthroughs while basking in a safe environment in which to grow as an artist.

Sunday evening before the workshop begins you meet for a wine and cheese get together at Gwen’s home.  This will give you the opportunity to select your table in the studio, bring in your supplies and get to know the other artists.  This allows you to enter the workshop on Monday morning as friends instead of strangers.

On Thursday evening there will be a grand party in your honor. A dinner enhanced by beauty, surrounded by flowers and set under the New Mexico sky filled with shining stars.  Laughter, good food, stories and insights into artistic growth abound.

This will be one of the many highlights of the workshop.
