In this class, you will make a painting with an emotional or lyrical quality using the formal elements of visual arts such as picture plane organization, proximity, repetition, continuity, figure/ground, texture, and rhythm. We will also begin an exploration into the versatility of water mixable oil paints as both a method of staining the paint surface and building thicker, juicier marks. Ages 16+ *Paint will be supplied by St. Louis Artists’ Guild. *Students will be responsible for their own canvas.
