This class will encourage students to explore creatively and expressively. Students will develop their ability to look carefully, to see and understand what they see through drawing and painting from observation, imagination and play with narrative, and scale. Participants will look at and discuss images from throughout the history of art (including contemporary art) in relation to their work. Constructive feedback and discussion of their own and others work will be an important part of the class. The environment will be encouraging, welcoming and fun! Having your own sketchbook is recommended. Other materials, acrylic paint, drawing materials and surfaces included.
