This class will run 75 minutes per session, and incorporate visual images of each artist on our projection screen or through other media, with a brief 10 min lecture/discussion lead by the instructor. Then, an introduction to the project and a making session for about 60 min. Small 2D works will be made in a variety of painterly combinations: a different approach every week, including: watercolor, tempera, acrylic, water soluble oil paint, inks, pigment suspensions, etc. This is a great opportunity for adults to try out making art with a variety of different painting media, while learning about technique and a bit of art historical content in the process.
