Artist Stephen Maine recently asked a number of artists the following questions: Is there a work of art in your personal collection that especially resonates with you at this weird, frightening moment? Does it take on new meaning? Help you cope? Freak you out? Provide solace or momentary escape?
In Roofless fashion, we’re going to take that premise a step further. Inspired by the copyist tradition dating back from the late 1700 at the Louvre, we’re going to select that special piece of art in our home that resonated with us right now and we’ll recreate it again through painting.
- Painting premise: painting an art object around us in the copyist tradition.
- Props: select an art object in your home. That’s the subject matter. Recreate it from life.
- Painting surface/format: any size, any kind. We recommend 9x12 format or under if you don't plan extra sessions on the painting.
- Painting webinar medium: we will use oil over cotton paper. Feel free to select your media.
Do I have to talk, present something, be on camera, or show what I'm doing?
A webinar is different than a video conference. You watch the presentation and instruction but you're not sharing voice or video.
What if I don't have the right materials for the session?
Here is the list of materials we use and a video on how to put them together. But you can definitely use any materials you may have at hand. We provide guidance and instruction that can be adapted to any setup you may have.
What if I can't make it at the time of the webinar?
Webinars are automatically recorded and become become available to replay. You can watch it anytime, as many times as you'd like. You can also register to view at any time thereafter.
Can I interact during the webinar?
Yes, you can do it in 2 ways: there is a chat box you can use and we have a shared photo album to share your process.
Can I interact if I don't watch the webinar live?
Yes, you still can. We have the shared folder as our point of contact after the webinar, where you can upload your work and get personalized feedback. You can also email us with any questions at any time.
What's the shared photo album for?
The shared album is our own social media space where we can upload images of our work. It's a convenient way to receive personalized feedback. It's easy to upload, share, and view.
What's the post-webinar video chat and how is it different from the webinar?
A few days after we host the webinar, we reconvene via video-conference to chat about our process, challenges, expectations vs results, and discoveries. It's an informal conversation, an add-on to the webinar, free and only available to people registered.
