Jaron Childs

Finding Your Voice as an Oil Painter

September 13-18, 2020 (Four Teaching Days)

Jaron will help you identify what obstacles are keeping you from expressing yourself in a way that feels authentic as an artist. This class will focus on giving you the tools you need to be present and attentive in your practice, develop practical skills which can be applied to any style, and reflect on your goals and intentions as an artist.

Jaron Childs studied painting and photography at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the US, UK, Italy, and Germany. In 2014 he was given a solo exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Childs’ paintings draw on photography’s relationship with memory to make inquiries about the place of humans in the natural world. In the quarterly journal ARTPULSE, critic Christina Schmid said of his work, “Ever so gently, Childs defies the delusions and discipline of art history’s magisterial gaze and insists on finding beauty in the humble minutiae of everyday moments and memories.” Childs resides in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

This is a Studio and Plein Air Workshop.
