In-Person Painting Marathon – with Catherine Lepp

Summer 2022

Course Description

In this Painting Marathon, students will explore the role of the Figure in the Landscape through drawing and painting from observation in nature and the studio, with the intersection of synthetics, composition, mark making, color theory and abstraction. 

During the first week, we will make working paintings in the landscape (in Washington Square Park) in the morning and from the model in the afternoon (NYSS studio). Students will learn how to translate the live experience into a sustained synthetic painting in the studio. To expand our research, we will visit museums and make transcriptions from the works of masters and contemporary practitioners. Students will explore a variety of processes, surfaces and color exercises to develop their approach to creating a final piece. Two to three optional evening sessions will include slide shows and critiques.
