PAINTING SEMINAR AT HELL CITY!!
Monday May 10, 2010
With a new baby at home, I won't be travelling much at all this year, so I have a rare seminar opportunity to offer at HELL CITY. "CLICK HERE" to go to the HELL CITY website: "In his brand new, never before offered seminar, Chris Dingwell will talk about his fifteen odd years of tattooing experience, as well as his paintings and his artistic background, and how it has made him the artist that he is today. Chris Dingwell is a unique figure in the tattoo community. He has a graduate degree in Fine Arts from Ohio State University, and has taught college level art courses for several years before diving headlong into the tattoo world. He began tattooing in 1993 in Columbus Ohio. He has travelled extensively and worked with many great figures in the tattoo industry, including Guy Aitchison, Corey Kruger, Julie Moon, and many more. This seminar will present a pre-view of the forthcoming book about acrylic painting techniques that Chris Dingwell and Cory Kruger are co-writing. The book will be published later in the year by Guy Aitchison's Proton Press. This seminar is for anyone who is at all interested in painting, from first timers looking for a place to start to the seasoned veteran who is looking to expand in new directions. Chris has a distinct and very personal, non-traditional approach to painting. He will encourage you to experiment and challenge yourself with acrylics in ways that will be able to give you a wide path to follow, with lots of possibilities to explore. He will debunk the myths about the medium and discuss the advantages of acrylic paint and how it can work for you. He will discuss a wide variety of materials, techniques, and approaches to the medium that are available today; showing examples through slides and live demonstration. Covering everything from composition and color to layering, glazing, and working with mixed materials, he will discuss various approaches to painting and art making with a strong focus on experimentation and working WAY outside the box. He will be discussing ideas that can be applied to help improve any kind of art making, including your tattooing. Participants are encouraged to contribute their thoughts and questions to this lively discussion about the ins and outs of acrylic painting. This should be an entertaining as well as informative event for any artist, no matter how new or old. For a better look at his work, both as a painter and tattoo artist, you can find him at www.chrisdingwell.com Sunday / 12 pm - 3 pm Course Length: 3 hours Unlimited seating! Cost $100
