Wednesday Evening Painting – with Sam Levy

Summer 2019

Class Sessions: June 19, 26, July 3, 10, 17.

*July 17 will be taught by Seth Becker.

Course Description

Painting from life is both difficult and extremely rewarding. Describing what we see while also being true to our perception, is a powerful metaphor for our experience. In this course, we will work from the model to better understand painting from life, and to construct personally meaningful images.

Course Outline

The class revolves around the process of working from life, looking at the model in context to their environment. Each week will have a different setup meant to explore an idea that will build our understanding of painterly issues. A wide range of past and contemporary artists will be discussed in context.
