About the Workshop

Paint and brush are used in the two-dimensional painting environment to create light, space, and a new visual order. Combining landscape painting with time spent in the studio, this course explores ways to develop responses to nature in painting. The focus is on building spatial structure, illumination, and techniques for manipulating paint. Different approaches to painting by Western and Eastern artists are discussed, as well as how each view art practice. Students can continue working on existing paintings, or start a new one for the week. Includes slide lectures.
