6 WEEKS, THURSDAYS, SEPT. 14 – OCT. 19, 6:30-9:30 PM
During Contemporary Painting for Beginners we will investigate the techniques and ideas of a range of contemporary painters, with a particular focus on Canadian artists. We will analyze the formal elements of design as well as the use of materials and how this relates to the ideas of the artists . During each class students will play with materials and painting techniques to develop their own individual style and focus.
