Painter's Laboratory

Like a science lab, the painter's laboratory is a place for practice, observation, and testing. This studio class is suitable for anyone wanting to explore and develop as a painter. The goal is to enhance seeing and to translate that highly personal skill into paint. We study and experiment with how to generate ideas, how to develop subject matter, how to build on and incorporate previous training and experience (including nonvisual), and how to engage the vastness of contemporary and historical arts as a mentor and ally. Lab skills include how to gather and use visual information for painting through collecting, drawing, and notation. This is a hands-on lab; the medium is acrylic paint. Materials fee.
