Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is not for everyone. It’s an adventure in pictorial thought, and it’s designed to drive you crazy. Because staying in your comfort zone is not enough for you, is it?
Nicolás Uribe will blow your mind to unblock the way you see and paint, to blow up your artistic limitations.
In this workshop, we will try to get the best out of you. We are going to make you react and, sometimes, we will also put you in trouble to spur your intelligence.
Hey, but there’s nothing to worry about because you’re going to have a great time.
The exercises, which we keep secret to preserve the effectiveness of their benefits, are designed to produce a deep reflection on the way you approach painting.
Nicolás will prompt you to think, react, and rethink things visually. We give you our word that this workshop will transform you to some extent.
So don’t ask yourself what you are going to do in this workshop; ask yourself what this workshop is going to do with you and let yourself go.
Perfect for you if…
- You are willing to question, rethink and transform your art.
- You want to free your painting from constraints and limitations.
- You love meeting people like you, participating in art chats and living along with Nicolás and Dani.
NOT for you if…
- You have in mind a usual workshop, with step-by-step exercises and academic routines.
- You are not willing to rethink the way you observe and paint.
- You’re not interested in the experience of meeting diverse people, discussing art with them and questioning their ideas.
What will you learn?
When the search for technique ceases to be the most important thing, something bigger than painting comes into play. That artistic sensitivity can only be achieved with the performance of humility in the process and detachment from the result.
This is a disruptive workshop with exercises designed to transform the way you observe and interpret nature.
Through exercises, talks, and demonstrations, you will learn to let go of the commitment to produce a painting, to think beyond the result, and to be interested in the what before the how.
You will learn to leave behind many conditioning and prejudices that block your artistic vision, as well as your capacity for pictorial resolution.
Nicolás will put all his energy into making this workshop a unique experience, where it is not possible not to learn, regardless of your level.
Important note — The exercises that Nicolás Uribe has designed for this workshop will remain secret so that you can take advantage of all of their benefits. This workshop is an adventure, and every adventure begins by disregarding the map and exploring new paths.
