PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Recent findings in neuroscience reveal how our visual system informs and interprets the visible world for us. As an example of science informing art, students in this painting class hear about neuroscientific concepts such as “peak shift” (how the brain responds to exaggerated stimuli) and “laws of grouping” (how the brain organizes visual elements into groups). By merging new findings on visual perception with familiar elements of art such as value, shape, and color, the students’ paintings take on new and fresh creative edges.

Students benefit from individual instruction and group critiques. Some painting experience preferred.
