Whether you’re drawn to representation or abstraction, this class will demonstrate the interconnection between both. We will explore the expressive qualities of a variety of materials, focusing on color and light, drawing, brushwork, texture, and composition. You can work in the medium of your choice (acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, drawing mediums). The class includes group and individual critiques in addition to power point presentations. This class will specifically explore Asian art, particularly Japanese work from the last two centuries.
Demonstrations with traditional and experimental techniques will be based on students’ interests.
