This class will be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and free painting time. We will explore the wide reaching boundaries of realism. From Rembrandt to Impressionism to modern movements of painting, we will take a look at the roots of abstraction and realism and apply it to making your own personal body of work. We will discuss putting together a mood board for formulating your creative thoughts and also demonstrate alternative methods for laying paint on canvas.
