Beyond Style: From Abstraction to Realism, a Painting Intensive
If you have questions, please feel free to call or e-mail. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you in class. See you in a few weeks.
|First Class Meeting|
For the first day of class, bring all course materials (see list
below) along with one photo or small-scale example of your current
artwork. In addition, be prepared to briefly discuss your interest and
background in art, especially painting. What inspires you? Particular
artists or artworks, current or historic. What about other media, like
film, literature, TV, or theater? What are you passionate about?
Science, religion, politics, family, sports, travel, hiking, food,
music, etc. Is there a particular idea or them you wish to explore
through painting? Please spend a few moments thinking about this
before the first day of class. If possible, jot down a few notes.
It is essential that you have your supplies the first day of the course. Be ready to work. Oils are the strongly recommended painting media for the course, but acrylics will be accepted.
