TUESDAYS:
PAINTING ESSENTIALS and LEARNING TO SEE — BARE BONES BASICS OF PAINTING with Sam Morrow

For students who are true beginners and those who consider themselves experienced beginners. Incorporating fundamental painting ideas while painting from life, our goal in this class is to explore the technical qualities of both oil and water-based oil paints; learning to construct value scales; color mixing and basic color theory. Learning to develop individual visual perception through painting from still-life is a key component while applying prerequisite technical skills – the use of paint and respective mediums, the use of different brushes and other tools and basic ideas on how to begin a painting.

WEDNESDAYS:

Section 1 Mornings THE CRAFT OF PAINTING and YOUR PERSONAL VISION-with Anna Patalano

This highly technical course focuses on development of painting techniques in oil, water-based oil, and acrylics while forming your personal vision. We will use your favorite photos as the basis for figurative, landscape, or still life ideas. This is not a class in photo-realism. The class will emphasize fundamental concerns of the craft of painting — understanding color theory and paint mixing, painting tools, surfaces and supports, toned grounds, and the various techniques of impasto, glazing, wet-into-wet, and final varnishes. Basic ideas on how to begin a painting using drawing techniques for transferring the image from the photo to the canvas will be demonstrated. Students should have some basic training in painting as a prerequisite.

PROCESS PAINTING: MASTER CLASS IN CONTEMPORARY ISSUES with Anna Patalano

For advanced painting students with emphasis on individual process. Using ideas of abstract and non-objective painting, students will learn how to deconstruct traditional subjects such as the figure, landscape, and still life to create completely unique and personal visual images. For those who are more adventurous, delving into com- pletely non-objective imagery is also an option based on elements of color, form, and space to structure the image. Different painting materials, mediums, tools, and techniques are explored. Collaborative critique of class work is an integral part of the course, as well as trips to major exhibitions in NYC.
