In-Person Painting Marathon – with Ilse Murdock

Summer 2022

Course Description

Observable color is most vibrantly seen through natural light, outdoors. In this two-week intensive we will take a deep dive into color painting, which will include regular outdoor painting sessions in local parks and areas accessible to the Studio School on foot and via public transportation. The outdoor situation adds a dynamic of chance, where the drama of shifting light ignites color relationships. These moments of visual inspiration will be backdrops for further research and development. Locations will become “spots” that we get to know with greater freedom as palette repertoires expand through practice and experiment. In addition to the relational aspect of color, students will realize an intuitive color sense that they can build on for future projects. Students will work primarily in acrylic and oil paint; however there will be work sessions to utilize discoveries as a launch pad for all mediums including sculpture and beyond. Through assigned palettes and color studies the eye is tuned to more directly see the unlimited possibilities within the relational sphere.
