Landscape Painting Now I

Course Description
This two-part course will cover a variety of approaches to contemporary landscape painting. The first part will cover an overview of landscape painting in the 20th century and then focus on new kinds of approaches to “realism” as well as post-pop abstraction and the New Romanticism movement. Projects will be supplemented by image presentations of artists including Maureen Gallace, George Shaw, David Hockney, Jules de Balincourt, Mamma Anderson and Anselm Keifer. Students can work in a painting medium of their choice including watercolour, gouache, acrylic or oils. Some painting experience is recommended.
