Portsmouth Workshop with Dennis Perrin

Portsmouth, NH Workshop with Dennis Perrin

A workshop with Dennis Perrin is more than just a teaching event about technique and picture making. It's a comprehensive seminar on how to think about painting, where a painting comes from, a self-examination of the question "Why Paint?", as well as a thorough exploration of color, value, temperature, technique and materials. 

Attending a The Perrin Method™ workshop ensures a complete exposure to the lineage of the great painters historically, and an immersion in the full enjoyment of the Creative Process. By teaching students to imagine and visualize their completed paintings, Perrin provides the student with an infallible road map to the successful completion of any creative project. Through discussion, slide shows, and demonstration, Perrin gives the student a complete understanding of The Perrin Method™, as well as a toolbox full of useful, practical tools that will perpetually serve the aspiring artist, accomplished amateur, or professional painter in the realization of their visions. 

The workshop begins with a lively session of introductions, followed by a development of intentionality. Perrin then lays out The Perrin Method™, its historical precedents, and its direct application to painting. He also brings everyone up to speed with the Checkerboard Illusion, the Color Illusion, and the Value based Simplification process. This is followed by a complete demonstration of a painting, step-by-step, from conception to completion.

We’ve added a new workshop! And it takes place right here in our hometown of Portsmouth, New Hampshire!

We’ve secured a wonderful location in the heart of this historic seaside town, and you’re going to love it! The workshop will be in the historic waterfront warehouse at the beautiful Wentworth Gardner Historic Home.

It’s actually a classic New England barn with huge doors that open into the beautiful grounds and gardens of the Wentworth. Across the street is the Portsmouth waterfront. Within a short walk is historic Strawbery Banke, Prescott Park and Gardens, and the spectacular downtown with shops, restaurants, hotels, and so much fun!
