2010 Paradise Artist Retreat Pass
The Paradise Artist Retreat will be held September 16-19 2010.
The Paradise Tattoo Gathering has gained a reputation for being a unique event in the tattoo industry, taking place at a beautiful secluded resort and focusing on seminars and forums. This year we're shifting the focus to the other fine art that tattooists are creating. At The Paradise Artist Retreat, over a hundred tattooists will be making art together for four days in the hills of Western Massachusetts while attending workshops on painting and figure drawing, with a curriculum led by Guy Aitchison, Shawn Barber, Nick Baxter, Cory Kruger, Chris Dingwell, Tom Strom and others. Many of these workshops are free and open to all attending artists. Between workshops, artists will work on the fine art projects of their choice alongside their colleagues, outside during the day and inside at night.
Painting passes are $150 per artist for four days, which includes entry into the discussion panels and seminars with Guy Aitchison and Shawn Barber. The first hundred artists to buy passes also receive free entry into the opening party including a great meal! Other seminars have an additional fee. All artists must provide their own supplies, canvas and materials. You will need a portable, collapsable easel. We recommend ordering one from Dick Blick. This afforadble easel will accommodate both the performance and display of your work. If you produce more than one piece, we have alternative ways of displaying art as well. First 20 artists to sign up will receive a free signed print of the Paradise Artist Retreat poster!
The retreat will be open to the public, and many of the works created over the weekend will be auctioned off online, and in person. Merchandise, including prints and clothing, of the artwork created can be sold on consignment via ParadiseArtistRetreat.com and TattooNOW.com for a fee. There will be a book/DVD documenting the weekend, with large quality shots of the artwork produced, as well as candid interviews and in progress photos.Cost: $150
Every morning from 10:30-12:30: figure drawing from a live model, with short poses led by Chris Dingwell and long poses led by Shawn Barber. Drawing the human figure from a live model has for ages been one of the central skills practiced by artists in all mediums. It's a great exercise for not only loosening up but developing a stronger sense of flow, proportion and balance. These sessions are free to all attending artists.
