Art Classes: Conveying Emotion Through Painting
Conveying emotion through art: Contemporary Expressionism. Tuesdays 5:45-8:15PM, October 23-December 11.
This class takes you on an introspective journey through expressionistic painting. Working with a live clothed model, students are taught to use the model as a launching point to paint the inner emotions of the self. Rather than painting an academic representation of what the model looks like, students will learn to transform reality with a raw approach through techniques such as bold brushwork, distortion, simplification and more. Students with any level of experience are welcome. The instructor will be working mostly with oils but any mediums (watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, etc.) are allowed and encouraged. Age group: 14+
