Painting: The Lure of the Local

Course Description
This thematic-based painting course is inspired by writer and art critic Lucy Lippard’s book of the same title. The focus will be on understanding our relationship to place as a source for subject matter. Projects will include ideas around memory, lands use, cities and suburbs, perception of nature, how we produce the landscape and how the landscape effects our lives. Some painting experienced required. Students can work in a painting medium of their choice (acrylic, oil, watercolour or gouache). Suitable for beginners.
