IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT
In LA, we’re infamous for allegedly living in our cars. We’ve always been looked down for turning cars into isolating bubbles. During a time when social distancing skills are a matter of survival, we’re now owning up to that stereotype: our cars are our safety bubble.
We’re proposing to not only utilize cars as shelters, but to use them also as observation points, mobile lookouts. Sit in the drivers seat of your car and take a few snapshots of the view through the windshield, the rear-view mirrors, the side windows; anywhere where there is a view framed by a car element. Choose one image as subject for your painting.
• Painting premise: urban landscape.
• Props: a digital image.
• Painting surface: any size, any kind. We recommend 9x12 or under.
• Painting webinar medium: 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.
