Drawings Into Paintings (Spring II 2017)

Instructor: John Sevcik

Mondays, 1-4pm

Tuition: $240 (Members: $225)

April 24-June 12

Use drawing as your research for paintings. Drawing has always been important to artists and constitutes a majority of many painters' work. This course helps you record your observations, use drawings from your personal sketchbook, as well as from imagination and memory to create the plan for a thought-provoking painting. The painted sketch will be an intermediate step to the larger painting. Painters who have used these methods include Arshile Gorky, Isabel Bishop, Rembrandt, Seurat, John Sloan, Thomas Eakins, and many more. Demonstrations will assist you in understanding the method and encouragement will be provided. Realist, expressionist, abstract and minimalist painters all welcome.
