There will be investigations in perception, sensation and how we experience color, motion, space, and orientation. We will borrow historic techniques and ideas across cultures from Europe to China. Consideration of the machinations of color, its perception, mixing and variable applications will be covered. Personal psychology, discoveries in neuroscience, mysticism, paint technology and new materials will also be covered. We will build brush vocabularies, design vocabularies and try new materials. Through demonstrations and illustrated talks, students will learn the techniques and ideas of historic artists. Demonstrations will include watercolor, acrylic and oil. Personal consultations in each class will cultivate your own vision and enable you to realize your personal artistic ambitions.
