The workshop involves approaches to painting and presentation, use of materials, tools, critical thinking, manners and methods of expression and signification, editing and processes of application in formulating meaning through paint. . The objective of the workshop, through preliminary explorations and studies is to create a responsive dialogue between the artist and their paintings in bringing essential elements of signification and process into a final work(s). . This is intensive and vigorous four-day workshop where Wayne Boucher works one on one with artists, and in a group critique daily to provide a forum for constructive evaluation and progress. .
