With a little alteration what we might have discarded can become our best work. We will paint the easiest way possible, by means of collage. We will begin with pure abstraction by making shapes and arranging them into multiple compositions. We will work on reproductions of your artwork brought from home by applying painted paper to the prints to adjust the shapes. We will rework our own work, masterworks, and works of our fellow artists. Be it an object, a place, or a person, it is the underlying abstraction that must excite us and needs to be strengthened. To further understand our paintings, we will recreate them as sculptures using cardboard and then work from these. Everything can be adjusted and readjusted via a scanner/copier. Student supply list is available online once you enroll in the class.
