Develop your painting skills through the expression of color and form. Students use processes that build on the formal principles of composition, value, and color, and they learn to take risks that produce paintings that are uniquely their own. The course begins with the creation of an inspiration board that includes classic and contemporary abstract paintings and a color palette. Students then synthesize the elements of each painting – color, linework, texture – that they want in their own works.
Through a process of play, contemplation and resolution, students will create a large painting. For both novice and experienced painters, students learn about the different levels of abstraction – from semi-abstract to non-figurative. Students respond to color and emotion and document them in class.
Taught by Bryan Jernigan, a national award-winning artist. His work is held by collectors around the world and his latest commission is for the Muse Old Town
