Painting skills, creating effective composition, and learning to 'see' and understand what makes engaging art is the core of this class. Students can study art that defines and interprets the intricacies of form in a realistic traditional manner, or create work that allows form to find itself through more immediate, experimental abstraction. Essential studies include accurate color mixing and choosing appropriate color palettes and materials to support your ideas. Explore painting and glazing techniques, traditional brushwork, palette knife, and alternative painting methods. For those choosing to 'mix it up,' explore the integration of textures, found materials, and unusual objects. Your studio experience is supported with personal attention, critiques, and reference to works of traditional and contemporary masters.
