"Painterly Pets"
Thursdays, March 7 - April 11, 2024

Dogs, cats, and other pets have sneaked their way into master drawings and paintings throughout the centuries. They have proven themselves to be important painterly subjects on their own or as a part of still lifes, portraits, domestic scenes, and other genres. Learn to find inspiration in your own furry family members to make them a meaningful part of your painting practice. Rather than a pet portrait or animal anatomy course, this class will explore ways of realistically and expressively depicting your animal, including them into other subjects as formal or personal elements, or even making them a part of abstract compositions. Line, gesture, movement, textural/optical effects, and compositional principles will be addressed. Open to all drawing and painting media.
Location: Web-delivered (Online)
