Introduction to Painting (Water Mixable)
instructor: Bryan Robertson
8 weeks | Wednesdays 1:00pm to 3:30pm | January 16 - March 13 (no class February 13)
In this class, we will use the formal elements of visual arts such as picture plane organization, proximity, repetition, continuity, figure/ground, texture, and rhythm as a method for understanding abstract and graphic art. This class will also serve as an introduction into the versatility of water mixable oil paints as both a method of staining the paint surface and building thicker, juicier marks. We will use still-life as a starting point to learn about form and vision through observation. Students may either complete this painting in a realist manner or push it towards abstraction. Ages 16+
