  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Continuing Education Course

EARLYBIRD ENDS: Jan 11, 2016 00:00:00


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.

• All students attending courses on the Goldsmith Campus must check in with Continuing Education staff in the lobby of the Ahmanson Building.
