Friday Evening Painting on Paper – VIRTUAL with Kaitlin McDonough

Course Full – please email Registrar Stephanie Bowman, sbowman@nyss.org, to join the waitlist. 

Course Description

With an emphasis on perception and materiality, this course is designed to help each participant identify the element most important to them in their paintings and to create new paintings based on the criteria identified. Participants are invited to use a range of water-based materials such as ink, watercolor and acrylic, along with collage and/or other materials, 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: relationships, 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.
