contemporary art, color, itself, can be a concept: cosmic imagery, duality, synesthesia, vibration or sacred geometry. Explore
conscious invention (the illusion of light) and accidental discovery (intuitive mixing in layers), as well as methods for
working through psychological blocks to allow a flowing familiarity with brush, pen, ink, watercolor, gouache, pastel or oil.
All media welcome: oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, mixed media

Through visual and verbal analysis, you will increase the power of your work and overcome
blocks that hinder the completion of paintings. The course presents ideas to help you explore the content of your art through
irony, humor, narrative, mood, and the use of unusual materials. Individual instruction and technical assignments will help
you to explore a particular style and become more independent by painting in series.
