Developing A Series: 5-Day Art Retreat WITH SAMANTHA WILLIAMS-CHAPELSKY


10:00 AM – 1:00 PM



Professional development for artists!

Join Samantha Williams-Chapelsky for a weeklong retreat where we will discuss developing a small, cohesive series of works that all pertain to one concept or idea.

Through discussions, research, and working on studies in a sketchbook, artists will create a small series of artworks that have a common theme, style, and could be continued on to be a strong portfolio of works or gallery submission.

The outcome will be to create 3 – 5 12 x 12” paintings that belong in a series of developing works.

Retreat Schedule:

  • Day 1: Slideshow, art talk, demonstration, research, and sketchbook exercises
  • Day 2: Sketchbook day – developing a working set of sketches and deciding on a color palette
  • Day 3: Paint, demo, challenge mini to loosen up!
  • Day 4: Paint, demo, challenge mini to loosen up and critique
  • Day 5: Finish, Tips on finishing, continuing series and varnishing/finishing touches
