Performance Art with Patricia Brace

April 27, 2019 / 10am-3pm / $75
Registration deadline: March 10, 2019

An introduction to thinking, drawing and painting in an abstract manner. Pulling ques from reality, we will use the still life, surrounding landscape, and photographs as input for abstraction. Students will explore mark marking techniques, build color palettes, and trick their minds in thinking differently through a series of non-traditional drawing and painting exercises. We will study the work of Henri Matisse, David Hockney, Robert Motherwell and Raimonds Staprans.

Painting: Essence of Place with Amanda Hawkins

June 8, 2019 / 10am-5pm / $110
Registration deadline: June 2

An introduction to traditional landscape painting with an emphasis on expressive color and gestural mark. Students will explore the defining/subtle qualities of their determined place and the different ways this can be interpreted through traditional drawing, color studies, and a larger, more involved painting. We will look closely at the work of Edward Hopper, Richard Diebenkorn, Raimonds Staprans, Louisa Matthíasdóttir.
