I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.

About the Workshop: Ginsburg will assist and critique each student's painting daily and he will give short painting demonstrations as a teaching tool each day. Students will paint and develop their own work during the bulk of each session. We will focus on "Painting From Life" in the traditional realist manner of the Old Masters.
The approach will be alla prima, or direct wet on wet oil painting; first blocking in the larger forms or shapes, then developing the smaller forms and details.
