Painting the Miracle (ONE DAY)
Walt Whitman wrote, “To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, every cubic inch of space is a miracle.” That’s what this class is going to do, learn to better see and express the miracle of light and form. There is no real secret to doing this. It always comes back to practicing and having a deepening understanding of the fundamentals. Value, color, shape, and composition will be emphasized and how these can be used to create light and form. Additionally the class will be discussing materials and technique. Students may work from a variety of sources including still life, photos or a model. Through it all the class will talk about seeing the miracles in front of their eyes!
