Workshop Description 

In this workshop, you will work in a relaxed, congenial and cooperative environment where there are no prede­termined rules. You will generate your opportunities and limitations from a will to be expressive, and an exposure to methods, techniques, and strategies that help to turn visions of the world into your expression on canvas. There will be a clothed model in an environment that encourages composition. The class should be thought of as a painting class, not purely a figure painting class. You should come out of the class with a heightened ability to freely interpret reality in paint.


Robert Henry has had numerous one-person exhibitions including shows at the Cortland Jessup Gallery and Barbara Inger Gallery in New York. He is Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn College.
