Painting: Place and Memory

About This Class

This workshop explores architectural imagery as a starting point for paintings about the passage of time, personal memory, or political history. How do spaces such as historical ruins, public parks, childhood homes, or abandoned cities hold both private and collective meaning for us? Working from their own photographic sources, students will develop a painting from thumbnail sketches; approaches to technique will include monochromatic underpainting, wet-into-wet layering, basic colour theory, and abstract composition. Studio work will be supported by slide shows of artists such as Caspar David Friedrich, Richard Diebenkorn, Edward Hopper, Denyse Thomasos, Edward Ruscha, Jane Dickson, and Danielle Dean. Some painting experience recommended.
