Intersession Painting Marathon – VIRTUAL: Dark Light and Color Galaxies: The Urgency of Acrylic Paint with Graham Nickson & Guests

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

Course Description

Dark Light, one of the many paradoxical states achievable in painting, will be a guiding theme as we navigate distinct color galaxies in this five-day Painting Marathon. Contrary to the belief that light only comes from high-key colors, we will explore wonderful dark light and many other potent mysteries that paintings can come to contain. This Painting Marathon will focus on the special advantages, properties, and abilities of acrylic paint. We will confront the fear and attraction of this medium through the creation of a large painting each day, in addition to smaller works. We will explore the universes of color through several particular means, starting with the role of the ground and pathways of relationships established with each mark. These materials and relationships will propel our search and create layers of meaning for us to explore.

This exclusive Painting Marathon is limited to twenty students.
