Friday Evening Painting on Paper – VIRTUAL with Kaitlin McDonough

Course Description

With an emphasis on perception and material, this course will expand one’s ability to see and work relationally. Participants are invited to use a range of collage and water-based materials such as ink, watercolor and acrylic to translate what they perceive (including, but not limited to, what one perceives through sight) into a visual system of organization, creating works that will range in duration and scale. Through painting, we will explore: looking and perceiving, light and value, mark-making and touch, color and vibration, scale and materiality, atmosphere and air, meaning, organization and mystery, tone and energy. We will work from a range of sources such as: observable spaces and objects in our respective locations, transcriptions, memories, invention, and from the various senses. This series will also focus on the cultivation of each participant’s respective motivations, methods and subsequent meanings in painting.
