Looking Both Ways: The Interconnection Between Representation and Abstraction

Dates and Time: September 30, October 7, 14 and 21; 1-3:30 pm
Registration deadline: September 27

Whether you’re drawn to realism or abstraction, this class will examine the interconnection between both. This class will explore the continuum between abstraction and realism through a discussion of Western Art over the last 200 years and studio time for the artist to create.

We will explore the expressive qualities of a variety of materials and compositions.  You can work in the medium of your choice. E.g., acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, drawing mediums. The class includes group & individual critiques in addition to powerpoint presentations.  Students will receive a Zoom link a couple of days before class begins.

Demonstrations will be based on students’ interests.
