A workshop with Dennis Perrin is more than just a teaching event about technique and picture making. It's a comprehensive seminar on how to think about painting, where a painting comes from, a self-examination of the question "Why Paint?", as well as a thorough exploration of color, value, temperature, technique and materials.
Attending a The Perrin MethodTM workshop ensures a complete exposure to the lineage of the great painters historically, and an immersion in the full enjoyment of the Creative Process. By teaching students to imagine and visualize their completed paintings, Perrin provides the student with an infallible road map to the successful completion of any creative project. Through discussion, slide shows, and demonstration, Perrin gives the student a complete understanding of The Perrin MethodTM, as well as a toolbox full of useful, practical tools that will perpetually serve the aspiring artist, accomplished amateur, or professional painter in the realization of their visions. The workshop begins with a lively session of introductions, followed by a development of intentionality. Perrin then lays out The Perrin MethodTM, its historical precedents, and its direct application to painting. He also brings everyone up to speed with the Checkerboard Illusion, the Color Illusion, and the Value based Simplification process. This is followed by a complete demonstration of a painting, step-by-step, from conception to completion.
An internationally renowned and collected artist whose work hangs in public and private collections on nearly every continent. Dennis Perrin was trained at The New Orleans Academy of Art under the late M. Dell Weller. For decades, he showed at galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and was a prolific creator of numerous figurative and floral works, many of which feature his wife, Aimee, as model.
In late 2015, in collaboration with his daughter, Camille Rose Fields, Perrin created The Perrin MethodTM, an online Atelier, dedicated to bringing his unique style of teaching to a worldwide audience. To date, The Perrin MethodTM boasts of students numbering in the many hundreds and in over 30 countries around the world. His live workshops have become exceedingly popular, regularly filling up. Several times a year, he and Aimee go on the road, teaching workshops from Georgia to California, and Europe to Russia.
Daily, Perrin’s works are celebrated in social media posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where he has a global following of more than 100,000 followers. His teachings go beyond the usual emphasis on traditional painting techniques to include visualization, imagination, and meditation, and Perrin strongly encourages his students to develop their own unique Personal Vision as artists. His Personal Mentoring Program emphasizes the unique role the individual plays in the development of their work.
Recently, Dennis and Aimee have moved to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where they have opened the Dennis Perrin Fine Art Gallery. To view the artist's current work, please visit the Gallery website here.
