Thursday, March 10th, 2022
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

This course is for people interested in representational or “realistic” painting, and who want to take their work to the next level and go beyond painting only what they see in front of them. The focus is on making personal and meaningful paintings based on analysis of images and subject matter. Students are introduced to contemporary artists who use representational imagery to depict a range of ideas and emotions. Course is organized by themes and will focus on the use of metaphor to express ideas. For example, a painting with architecture as subject, could represent political autocracy; a flower, the transience of life; a bowl of soup, the importance of the everyday and banal. Students are encouraged to explore images that are of particular interest to them as a way to develop their own artistic sensibility. Acrylic or oil can be used. Some painting experience is recommended.
