Advanced Painting (summer)
In this course, students will define their own priorities in paint. The emphasis will be on creating a dialogue within each student’s body of work while continuing to explore new artistic territory. Studio time is stressed: how best to further identify and realize one’s goals, how to organize one’s efforts, how to work both intellectually and physically in the studio, and how to communicate one’s intentions. Individual instruction will be given with the encouragement of an exchange between fellow students. We will explore various media to further inform and advance painting efforts. Students will be asked to use New York’s vast cultural resources on a regular basis. The understanding of our visual culture, the evolution of our creative working process and the ability to communicate our ideas are the means toward future study. Models will be available as required.
