The class will explore a variety of techniques using acrylic paint. We will develop painting strategies that draw on specific painting traditions as starting points. Students will be challenged to undergo personal experimentation, to innovate and to begin to develop an independent painting practice. Class time will consist of material demonstrations, work sessions and group discussions. By studying of a range of historical and contemporary artists, students will learn problem solving techniques to develop as a painter. read more

Basic Drawing

Tuesdays, Oct 26 - Dec 14, 1:30-4:00pm

Drawing is a powerful way to translate ideas and experiences onto a two-dimensional surface. This course will introduce students to basic aspects of drawing. We will explore observational and material processes, as well as concepts and creative potentials. By the end of the course, each student should be able to identify, practice, and recombine basic drawing methods. Students may bring their own drawing materials and paper. If they don’t possess some already, follow the suggested list. read more
