In Translation: Abstraction In Process
How do we perceive what we observe and how do we translate what we perceive into an abstract language? By investigating the processes of observation and painting, this course introduces students to the exploration of abstraction. Students experiment with both oil and water-based media, use direct and indirect painting approaches, develop a strong base of technical and conceptual knowledge, and discover how visual metaphor and material processes work together. Students are encouraged to experiment with individual interests that emerge from color study, drawing exercises, and visual projects to find their own abstract language.
