Painting: Composition and Process (PNTGs275-18)

In this online course, students learn how to create dynamic compositions, while also discovering how to make use of the unique physical properties of oil or acrylic paint to make a rich and exciting surface. Discover the value of planning evocative and successful compositions using sketching, overlaying techniques, collage and digital collage. Students will discover how to create a compositionally strong starting point before you begin to paint, and then let the painting process take over. Students can work in acrylic or oils. Some painting experience recommended.

Painting: Series Development (PNTGs207-18)

This course focuses on having students develop a series of work based on their experience in the world, in particular where they live and what the idea of ‘neighbourhood’ means to them. As a prerequisite to this course, students must take 12 photographs (minimum), of what they think of as their ‘neighbourhood’, and bring these with them to the first class. For the preliminary project students paint a triptych from this selection of images, in the style most suited to the individual. From this initial series, students develop a body of work based on a theme. Examples of contemporary artists working in a thematic way will be given throughout the course. Students can work in a painting media of their choice: acrylic, watercolour, gouache or oil. Some painting experience recommended.

Painting the Everyday with Gouache (PNTGs241-18)

This course is inspired by the artist, illustrator and writer Maira Kalman (hyperlink to her webpage: http://www.mairakalman.com/). The focus is on using gouache to paint objects and experiences that are part of everyday life. Gouache is a versatile material that can make rich velvety surfaces and painterly washes and is great for those new to painting. Composition, working with text, and ideas surrounding meaning and content will be addressed with each project. Course will include presentations of other artists working with ‘the everyday’ as source. Suitable for beginners.

Watercolour Play Extended (PNTGs157-18)

This course will introduce you to watercolour painting through a series of basic exercises that demonstrate how to build simple, yet dynamic, compositions. The emphasis is on “play,” not on making finished paintings. You will learn how to hold the brush, how to mix colours, and how to have fun by just making marks, shapes, and well-designed compositions. The course offers an extension of exercises introduced in the three-hour "Watercolour Play" workshop. Suitable for beginners.
