Painting and Paint – Studio Practice; with oil

The premise of this workshop is to establish a relationship, in oil painting, between individual experience by perception and the language(s) of abstraction and representation. The workshop will focus on the interpretation of individual memory for the function of imagining in painting.An introduction to the medium and support of oil painting and to the theory of complimentary color theory will be supplied. Studio visits to Boston area painters and museum visits to the Fogg and the MFA will be woven into the course schedule.
