An excellent introduction to painting (for beginners) and concept & style (for experienced artists).For all, a focus on color mixing to create ‘light’ and emotion in your art, as well as the illusion of 3-d form, space, and texture. Monochromatic color and color in contrasting layers add spice to your work. All subject matter welcome: realism, abstraction, surrealism, still life, portrait, landscape. No pre-requisite. Questions? Contact instructor: glennhirsch@earthlink.net (415-987-1226).

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.


prerequisite: recent college-level classes in painting and/or drawing.
