Abstract: This class is an opportunity to explore the possibilities of paint. You can expect to be immersed in certain fundamentals of material and technique including application, color, texture, scale and composition. But mostly you will be encouraged to experiment and have accidents. As Bacon implied, happy accidents can be a great source of strength and a catalyst for evolution in painting. You will find that the best way to create these conditions is to paint a lot. Here’s your opportunity to learn the lessons of painting ten fold, by observing the accidents and evolution of your classmates. You will watch each others progression closely and bounce off each others moves. Together we will pursue what motivates & inspires you both physically & mentally and attempt to connect it with the process and medium of paint by transcribing that information in a visual language. You will learn ways in which to research so that you may add content to the work based on your own personality. You will work as a team during critiques to begin to articulate what you see in your own work and the work around you. This class gives you the chance to question how painting functions, how it interacts with its audience and how it embodies content.
