This class will provide beginning students with an overview of technical and conceptual ideas behind perceptual drawing. During class time we will draw primarily from still life, landscape, and figure. I will provide one-on-one instruction and do demonstrations during class time. We will also participate in group critiques and introduce basic vocabulary of visual art. Finally, we will look at work by artists in contemporary and historical practice who use the techniques discussed. Students will develop a basic set of drawing skills and be able to understand and analyze visual problems. Ages 13-18.

About Timothy Wagner
My current mixed media paintings develop a specific visual language that defines subject matter and content. The paintings evolve in layers of found imagery, photo transfers and color theory. The resulting product is a culmination of my thought process as it is created. Every layer of paint, every mark on the picture-plane becomes a crucial meaning of its history and the eventual resolution of the statement. Form, atmospheric space and color are the catalyst for my imagery, illuminating the world of our natural and urban surroundings.
