"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.

"Lost and Found: Painting from the Everyday Workshop"

Do you have a favorite corner of your house? Or maybe there’s that single sock in your drawer... Visually rescue objects and scenes lost and overlooked in day-to-day life and see them anew as art subjects that can be unexpectedly beautiful, interesting, quirky, or emblematic of a particular time, place, or aspect of your life. Discussion and demonstration will cover tactics for setting up your composition, mixing color, and exploring paint application techniques for oil and acrylic. All levels welcome – great for spurring your creativity.
