Oil Painting: From Nature to Abstraction
Painters develop and hone oil painting skills using nature as the point of departure for the creation of an abstract language in this exploratory workshop. With an eye toward regionalist landscape painters who turned to abstraction, the class takes inspiration from artists like Forrest Bess, Marsden Hartley, Lawren Harris, and Agnes Martin. Emphasis is on gesture, color, and form as students find new and investigative strategies for the exploration of abstraction, changing the shape and approach to the practice of painting.
