Sunday Afternoon Painting – VIRTUAL with Jonathan Harkham
In this painting class, students will create paintings primarily from conceptual drawings that convey a personal language through sensitive markmaking. Students will explore what that means and how it maybe obtained through a meaningful and engaging process of looking and responding. As there are numerous methods and ideologies used to create works of art, it is important to consider the foundation that artists build their process upon. Closely examining certain painters throughout history to study how they pursued experiential visual language on this premise of looking. Taking clues from what we discover and using certain criteria to build stil llife setups we will work from observation and transcription. We will study drawing as an honest and direct means of responding to experience. Then use the drawings information to create a personal language of painting that carries one’s own unique experience through tactility, color and composition.
