Art reveals the evidence of our experiences and values. By observing and creating, the artist suggests themes that are essential to his or her character, and perpetuates the making and sharing of experiences. Through art, subjects become significant to us in unique ways, aesthetically and conceptually. Through lecture and demonstration, this workshop will not only reinforce an understanding of composition and form, but will also explore methods to break up and strip down the subject, then reconstruct it in new and surprising ways. Working in oils, we will explore systems of dividing the space within the rectangle, distributing the lines and forms of the subject. Students will participate in discussions regarding the subtleties,variations, lines, textures and colors that enliven our senses and captivate our interest; the way our eyes perceive things and how we make choices regarding their relative importance; the suggestion of the passage of time; the relative states of motion and stillness; how the artist may represent nature in order to reflect on his or her perceptions, experiences and values while also contemplating the important power of content, symbol and abstraction. Douglas demonstrates every day of the workshop. This class is meant for intermediate to advanced painters.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
