Discover the differences and similarities between traditional Eastern and Western art as well as the interconnection between both. Eastern art has inspired many Western artists including van Gogh, Cassatt, Kline and Morris Graves, and many others. Students will be encouraged to experiment with art making processes of both traditions. We will explore technical and aesthetic differences including philosophy, mediums, and the power of suggestion, to name a few. Bring the quiet space, layering of pen, brush, and ink, and spatial perspective of Eastern art into your work. You can work in the medium of your choice (acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, fabric, drawing mediums). The class includes group and individual critiques, PowerPoint presentations and studio time. Demonstrations will be based on students’ interests.

Please have ideas for the paintings you want to make. E.g.

  • Sketch book
  • Photographs
  • Still life setups in your studio

Supplies:

All students may want a notebook to record ideas/thoughts from demonstrations and discussions.

Experienced students can utilize the medium and materials you typically use.

Beginning students may want to work in watercolor or drawing materials:

For Watercolor

  • Brushes.  Some student grade round (size 2, 4, and/or 6) and flat (one stroke, size 1/4, 1/2 or 3/4”) watercolor brushes are a good way to start. Usually synthetic. Winsor & Newton Cotman brushes are one brand that works well.  Filberts and other brushes/sizes can be added as needed.
  • Paper. Canson Watercolor Pads Cold Press work well. 11X15 or 7X10” and 9X12” wire bound.
  • Paint.
    • Tube paint Winsor & Newton Cotman student grade are economical. Cotman has a set of 6 tubes of varying colors or tubes can be purchased individually. Artist grade paints are more expensive but have more pigment and intensity. Winsor & Newton, Sennelier, Schmincke Horadam are  good brands.
    • Pan paint. Crayola Educational watercolor pans work suprising well and are very economical. Winsor & Newton, Sennelier are both good brands. Cotman is the student grade brand of Winsor & Newton.
    • Palette or freezer paper to layout paint.

- Plastic or tin containers for water.  Old butter, yogurt, or tuna fish cans work well.

  • Board to mount paper. Foam core board or hardboard panels work well. Good sizes include 11X14” or 14X18” depending on your paper.
  • Pencil and kneaded eraser.
  • Paper towel
  • Artist tape to adhere paper to your board.

-Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Artists' Crayons (make sure they are the water-soluble not wax crayons) These are fun but not necessary.

For Drawing

  • Pencils  (various hardnesses HB, 2B,4B,6B)
  • Colored pencils can be fun. Watercolor pencils add a new dimension.
  • Pens. Micron is one type that makes an interesting line.
  • Kneaded eraser.
  • Paper. Any paper with a weight greater than 90 lb works.  (watercolor, drawing ) 140 lb is a good weight if you plan on using water based medium.
  • Board to mount paper. Foam core board works well.
  • Artist tape to adhere paper to your board.
  • Sketchbooks are a nice alternative and don’t require a board or tape to mount paper.
