Present a 6 Week Intensive “Boston School” Methods Workshop

With Artist/Teacher Paul Ingbretson


Purpose of workshop is to introduce the Boston School color and light methods to painters who ideally already have some level of competence and confidence in drawing.  

Major focus will be on color and light, visual order of effects, painterly drawing, simultaneous color and drawing, direct painting without mediums, working from the outside in, the arabesque, and the anchoring of all aspects of the visual world. Emphasis will be on the 'good' start, the lay-in, of the picture since it contains the keys to the entire process

Structure will include Boston School presentations and analysis of the underlying thinking, demonstration(s), and hands-on critiques of assigned work from still life to portrait. We will also take a trip or more to the museums of the Boston area focusing on the well represented work of Tarbell, DeCamp, Benson and Paxton.

Instruction and Critiques will be 3 days per week for the first 4 weeks of the summer.  During the last 2 weeks, every afternoon there will be a portrait model from 1-4 pm, and Paul will be in the studio daily.

Materials needed: oil paints, brushes, canvases


Studio will provide: models, easels, still life stuff


Location: The workshop will be held in the beautiful, north light Ingbretson Studios located at 250 Canal Street in Lawrence, MA.


Dates: July 20- August 28, 2020, 9 am to 5 pm (daylight hours)


Price: $3,600 for 6 weeks

 $2,600 for 4 weeks
