Marilyn Feinberg
Drawing, Painting

Painting by Marilyn Feinberg from Workshop Faculty ShowMarilyn Feinberg has taught drawing at the Creative Workshop since 1995. She focuses on the fundamentals: how to draw, how to see, and how to connect through art.

Marilyn earned her MFA from RIT and her BS from Michigan State University. She has exhibited at Sonnenberg Gardens, Canandaigua; Center at High Falls, Rochester; Kornbluth Gallery, NJ; Burchfield-Penney Center, Buffalo; RIT; in several MAG Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibitions; and at the Rochester Fine Art Store’s Invitational for 2008 and 2009.

Marilyn received both juror’s awards and merit awards the last two years in the Pittsford Art Group and in the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters. Other awards include Basketry Focus, Ottawa; Westmoreland Art Nationals, Latrobe, PA; Baltimore American Craft Council; and the Bausch & Lomb Commission Award.

As Marilyn told us, “Each session I focus on a fundamental of drawing that is usually presented first through demonstration. Then we look at this fundamental in artwork from the past or in our collection. I then present an exercise that allows each student to explore this concept while they simultaneously build critical seeing and drawing skills. Knowledge is further deepened by sharing their process and findings with others. Individual views and discoveries are welcomed.”
