Painting the Landscape
Landscape painting is an innately pluralist exercise: it presents us with a range of possible approaches and perspectives by which to analyze not only places, but also their contexts. In this class, we will explore the landscape as a means of expressing our contemporary world via realism, metaphor and abstraction. You will have the opportunity to learn the groundwork for a successful landscape painting and the freedom to build on this throughout the semester. This is a fantastic opportunity for all ranges of students from first timers to more advanced students.
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
