Narratives in Acrylic Painting - Online

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 are welcome.

Registration deadline is 12 p.m., January 29
