Aim toward developing a personal visual vocabulary while focusing on the relationship between realism and abstraction. Work with oil and acrylic paint as well as other media of your choice. This class, which creates an informal, studio-like atmosphere, also focuses on "starting points"-strategies to help you go beyond looking at a blank canvas and actually begin a painting. The class will use one night to take a field trip to a local art museum. Students should bring something to draw or paint with to the first class. Other supplies discussed at the first class.
