The Chinati Foundation is pleased to host Marfa artist Nick Terry for a free paint-making workshop from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, January 18. This introductory workshop provides participants with the skills, materials and knowledge to make water-based paints. They'll also gain an understanding of this versatile and timeless media.
How did we get here? And what is important? These are big and lofty questions, central questions for any artist, and they are questions that have been plumbed by students who’ve participated in the sustained projects that have grown from Chinati’s ongoing and rich partnership with Marfa ISD. The Longform Workshop allows the student to think about a topic over an extended period of time. Out of town visits, guest speakers and an emphasis on critical thinking are all hallmarks of these programs, which can span several days or several months. The workshops described below originally incorporated multiple visits to Marfa ISD by Chinati educators, various visits by students to the museum and different trips to cultural sites and museums in other cities. In our experience with working with out of town districts we’ve found that many of them can be executed remotely, abridged or adapted into shorter programs.
