ONLINE: In Conversation: A Mixed-Media Class SOLD OUT!
“If good painting is what you want to do, then good painting is what you must look
at.” —Louise Fishman
In this five-week class, we will see what we can learn from good artists from the past and present. This is not a class in which we will be copying old masters; rather, for the first four weeks, we will complete exercises in our own voices inspired by the following considerations found in the work of others: the role of memory in picture making; a dialogue between media; art as theater; and a personal vocabulary of shape. During our fifth meeting on Zoom, we will enjoy a group exhibition and discussion of participants’ work. Participants will share their work on an online platform. Weekly slide presentations will supplement the exercises. The class’s emphasis will be on discovery and experimentation. Don’t let the conceptual nature of the course description scare you—this is truly a class for artists of all levels of experience!
