Painting: Representation & Abstraction

Course Description
This painting course addresses the various relationships between representation and abstraction. Students begin with subject matter from the world with a focus on nature and landscape, and develop methods to blend representational and abstract imagery into a personal and imaginative language of their own. The focus is on making paintings where representation and abstraction coexist in a singular work. Examples of work of contemporary painters will be shown for inspiration. Some painting experience recommended.
