This course will provoke students to convey a compelling narrative through painting. We will experiment with various acrylic paints, mediums, surfaces, and techniques to develop a personal approach to image making. Through individual dialogue, class discussions, and critiques, students will receive feedback and direction on how to challenge their practice. We will investigate the works of artists like Mickalene Thomas, David Hockney, Christina Ramberg, Alex Katz and many others. Basic drawing and/or painting skills are useful, and non-representational artists welcome.
"Critiques were great. I cannot believe how much one-on-one time we each had with a professor and artist like Barlow. That alone was worth every penny and something I think we get a lot more of in the virtual classes than in person. " – Student of Michael Barlow
