This class is designed to teach beginning to advanced students to paint in an intuitive manner starting with no preconceived notion or outcome. Emotions and feelings will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement color, texture, line, shape and value. Instruction will start with arbitrary mark making and color application, working transparent to opaque building layers using a variety of mark making tools, watercolor, gesso and acrylic. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between shape, texture, line, color and value. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is a painting that is aesthetically pleasing, unique and reflective of the artistic mind.
