This painting class will provide the time and space to experiment while also honing techniques and developing and processing ideas. Exploration-as-making is encouraged as we find our way through space, movement, color, line and form with paint and other materials to create something other. Students will explore individual interests as they organize ideas and intentions. Everyday observation and research will be documented in sketchbooks as a way of seeing – to develop content and plans for paintings.
Projects and critiques in class will provide opportunities for individual guidance and inform conceptual approaches and studio development. Group discussions and critiques will also allow students to articulate ideas, informed by ways others present their work and, through this exposure, learn how their work is being interpreted. Contemporary painting and art from variety of histories will be examined along with source materials including readings, poetry, and music to deepen social and cultural awareness in the medium and apply it to one’s practice.
For Registration, see Josh Blackwell on May 17th.
