Continuing Education Course



Painting and Visual Storytelling: Ages 13-15


Learn to paint with acrylics while exploring Narrative Painting, an approach to art that tells a visual story. Visual narrative is usually told in a series of images, but many artists such as Frida Kahlo, Gary Baseman, and Kara Walker have mastered the ability to tell a story through a single complex work of art or 2-dimensional installation. Using these leading artists and others as reference, choose a favorite story, comic, or original poem for inspiration to create your own paintings. Learn painting techniques such as glazing, impasto, and heavy texture, as well as the elements and principles of art including composition, color, and form. Class discussion will focus on examples in art history that demonstrate narrative art including biography, mystery, and adventure.

IMPORTANT:
• On the first day of class ALL students attending courses on the Goldsmith Campus must check in with Continuing Education staff in the lobby of the Ahmanson Building before attending class.
• All Young Artist Workshop students are required to submit a completed Pre-College Programs Emergency Contact Information Form, Policies and Procedures Acknowledgement of Receipt, and Photo/Video Release Form prior to admittance into the classroom. Students will not be permitted to attend without this.
