Power of Expressive Brushstrokes and Mark Making! 

Cost: $ 575

​​December  5 - 8, 2024   (4 days)

9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

​Anderson Mill Garden Club,

13974 FM 2769, Volente, TX 78641

All levels, oil painting. Acrylics painters are welcome too.

This 4-day workshop is particularly designed for anyone who wants to learn how to paint expressive yet energetic paintings. We will be focusing on exploring different mark making, textures and other tools besides brushes to create some interesting paintings. 

In this workshop, we will be painting mostly rainy urban scapes, city canal boat scenes and flowers. There will be a discussion on how to simplify and utilize shapes to capture mood to create expressive paintings. How to suggest your painting with good design, exciting brushstrokes and colors. How to balance realistic and abstract in your painting. 

Students will paint in oil from photo references (provided by Hsin-Yao or students themselves) each day. Hsin-Yao will demonstrate each day in the morning and then work with students on an individual basis.  

Hsin-Yao Tseng's Bio:

b. 1986, Taipei, Taiwan; currently living and working in San Francisco, CA 

Hsin-Yao paints oil in a Romantic, expressive manner that honors the Western tradition while signaling an edgy, contemporary complexity. He has a curiosity and energy that propel him toward experimentation and innovation; accordingly, he works in a range of genres: from lush evocations of cityscapes to expressive portraits, and lustrous interiors and exteriors in which multiple figures enact a story, and finally to his recent new exploration in bright colors of flower paintings. Hsin-Yao’s prose testifies to the fact that he is ambitious in the best sense; he is eager to push his art beyond what’s immediate and popular toward the timeless and real. 

Hsin-Yao has recognized by the Art Renewal Center as an ARC Living Master in 2014. He received the Signature Status recognition by Portrait Society of America in 2018. He has won many national and international awards including the First Place awards at Southwest Art Magazine Artist Excellence competition in 2016., He received both Exceptional Merit Award and Certificate of Excellence in International Portrait Competition from Portrait Society of America, in 2012 and 2010. He was honored to received Honorable Mention Award and finalist awards in ARC Salon over the years. His work is on the 2016 November cover on the Southwest Art magazine and 2012 December of the Artist’s magazine. He has exhibited his artworks in a huge number of group shows across the United States, Europe, Taiwan including solo shows, two-man shows, and many group shows.
