In this class we will talk about what paintings actually look like, because as Oscar Wilde said: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible." Our focus will be on playfully inventing a shared language to discuss each other's paintings—defining together terms like "image energy", "decorative manners", "constriction vs. composition", "visual cuisine", "recessive vs. aggressive styling", and "mini skirts vs. ball gowns".
Each week 5-10 participants will bring 3-5 paintings for critique, joined by a guest artist. Classes being at 7pm with a brief interview with our guests focusing on process and what we really do in the studio. Participants will be able to request which guest artist they would like to critique with. Guests critics will be announced in mid-January, our first session will be on January 26th.
