This workshop will involve painting the nude figure in the interior. The aim will be to examine the relationship of the figure to the surrounding space, and how one builds a picture from those occurrences. Students will get the opportunity to work on smaller/faster paintings in conjunction with a longer/more sustained piece. More specific ideas to be explored will include the following: embracing and building the physicality of the surface, seeing color and value structures abstractly, de-conceptualizing the figure, and prioritizing pictorial space over the idea of illusion and realism.
We're sorry, this class is fully enrolled.
