Friday Evening Painting on Paper – with Kaitlin McDonough

Fall 2019

Course Description

Through sensitive perception and engagement with materials, this course will expand one’s ability to see 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.

Emphasis will be placed on fierce looking, light and value, mark-making and touch, scale and materiality, atmosphere and air, tone and energy. This series will also focus on the cultivation of each participant’s respective motivations, methods and subsequent meanings in painting. All levels of experience are welcome.
