Techniques of the Painter: From Abstraction to Representation


This painting course is designed to aid beginning and advanced artists in stimulating imaginary thinking and developing their personal vision. With equal emphasis on formal skills and experimentation, exercises focus on trusting intuition, learning to see inward, and the ability to see oneself reflected in the world at large. How do we see our authentic selves in the external environment? How do we make this vision manifest in our creative works? At the core, our aim is to create paintings that are well crafted and clearly rooted in individual expression. Students are encouraged to utilize representational and abstract elements, which are essential in bringing to life the visual world and one’s own creative self-expression. Also explores the discipline of being an artist, the rigor of career and professional practice, and how to remain true to a unique vision despite market trends. Oil paints are recommended, but acrylics are also acceptable.

Prerequisite: XDWG1001 Drawing & Composition; experience using a digital camera including iPhones and a laptop computer with basic Photoshop skills are required.

First class materials: TBD
