Still life in front of a window at Saint-Raphael, 1919, by Picasso
Students in this 8-session course are invited to experiment with a variety of modernist painting styles such as cubism, suprematism, and abstract expressionism. Through a series of exercises, including still-life setups and model sessions, participants learn practical applications of the concepts and techniques of modernism. The class includes lecture, demonstration, group discussion, and critique sessions.
Designed for painting students of all skill levels, the class moves students beyond the basics to focus on discovering and developing their own unique visual language.
