Painting: Series Development

Learn to develop a body of work based on a singular theme.

More details

In this 12-week course, students will focus on developing a unified series of paintings. Guided research assignments using photography, drawing and creative writing will lead to the cultivation of each student's own topic of choice. Series topics will include formal and conceptual investigations such as use of materials, composition, structure and the development of ideas. Course includes examples of contemporary and modern artists who work in thematic ways, along with assigned readings, weekly critiques and opportunities to share research processes. If you are an artist with a million ideas swirling around, or if you simply don't know where to begin, this course will help you to understand the connections in your life that can lead to the creation of a cohesive body of work. In addition to developing a series, students will learn how to write an artist statement and prepare a submission for an artist residency or gallery. Students can work in a painting media of their choice: acrylic, watercolour, gouache or oil. Some painting experience is recommended. THURSDAYS, JAN 11 - APR 4, 2PM - 5PM ONLINE
