Join acclaimed Neosurrealist painter Anne Faith Nicholls for a creative exploration of Surrealism, from its history to its exciting resurgence in New Contemporary Art—to your easel! We will use Salvador Dalí’s “50 Secrets of Magical Craftsmanship” to inspire the subconscious and your art practice. We will also re-examine Frida Kahlo and René Magritte’s portraits for hidden messages, and get up-close and personal to some of the Palm Springs Art Museum’s more mysterious works. Over the course of this workshop, you will explore symbolism and context to create your very own René Magritte-style painting in the Museum’s studio classroom, while learning unique acrylic painting techniques and trade secrets taught by the artist.

Best recognized for her Neosurrealistic paintings, Nicholls has exhibited in collections, galleries, museums and fairs around the world, and also contributed to a variety of high-profile commercial projects with renowned collaborators. Often exploring the subconscious, her works are layered and mysterious, creating symbolic and alluring narratives on the human condition with a unique perspective.
