Beginning in the 1960’s, Seward Johnson’s painted trays have provided a mixture of utility and hobby, embodying the artist’s search for warmth and contentment. Favorite subjects to explore were memories, painted with watercolor-like washes, and scenes from his home and farm in Hopewell, NJ, in sculptural impasto techniques. Using this as inspiration, capture Johnson’s personal studio itself or a scene from a favorite photograph as we explore color theory and composition, experiment with an unusual substrate, and delve into the versatility of acrylic paint. Recommended supply list to be provided. Primed and ready found objects and metal trays available.

* All experience levels welcome. Participants must be 16+
