Announcing the new workshops given by Dean Nimmer in Holyoke this
summer. These workshops are designed for adults with any level of
artistic background, from novices to those with extensive experience
in painting, drawing or printmaking.

Exploring Abstract Art
Sat and Sun, May 19 + 20 – 11am to 4pm each day
This workshop uses innovative techniques to expand the inroads into
the vibrant world of abstract expression. We will explore new painting
and drawing projects based on working abstractly from observation,
memory and from your uninhibited imagination. These projects will be
part of a new book I’m writing for Random House to be published in the
spring of 2013.

Sunday, June 24 – 1pm to 6pm – also Sunday, August 19 – 1pm to 6pm
This will be a 5-hour, non-stop, no time to think or whine, drawing

different techniques and subjects using paint, charcoal, pastels and
mixed media combinations. We will create to upbeat music for the pure
enjoyment of it all!

Sunday, July 1 – 1pm to 6pm
Like the Marathon Drawing workshop, Collage-a-thon will be a 5-hour,
non-stop, no time to think or whine, collage making session that
emphasizes passion, process and fun over fussy, analytical picture
making. We will explore with abandon many different 2D and 3D collage
techniques using paper, cardboard, metal and wood scraps scavenged
from attics, cellars, garages, flea markets and the trash. Again, the
goal for the day is to MAKE as much as we can with no critiques, no
guilt and no thinking about “good or bad art”.

monotype compositions. We will be using hand rubbed techniques for
combining drawing, painting and printmaking processes together to
achieve unique and dramatic results in your art.
