Winter Camp (12 - 16 years): Plein Air Painting

Starts - Monday 12 December 2022

Tashkeel Artist-in-Residence (2022-23), Alonsa Guevara is a New York-based artist originally from Rancagua, Chile. Her paintings are a window to an imaginary universe where the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred. Her work explores questions of womanhood, identity and belonging while celebrating the connection between humankind and nature. Her main inspiration derives from the experiences of living in three different countries, and is especially impacted by formative childhood memories of living in the Ecuadorian rainforest with her family for seven years. Alonsa subsequently returned to Chile to receive her BFA from Pontifical Catholic University in 2009. In 2011, she moved to New York for the MFA programme at the New York Academy of Art. She was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant in 2013 and received the Academy's Fellowship in 2015. Alonsa's work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Time Out NYC Magazine, VICE, among others and has been exhibited internationally, including China, Mexico, Denmark, Argentina and Chile. Her most recent solo show ‘Apparitions’ was in 2021 at Anna Zorina Gallery, New York.

This workshop invites students of all levels to join us in a fun, outdoor painting class. Students will learn different acrylic painting techniques while enjoying the beauty of the Tashkeel garden.

Students will be encouraged to work from observation looking at both, the wider landscape, as well as fragments of the natural surroundings. We will focus on capturing light, colour, textures, and depth.

Participants will learn colour development, colour mixing, and the lack of black will be other subjects taught during this class.
