Abstract Painting: Experimentation, Exploration, Investigation (ONLINE) PT 705E_ON

with Keith Leitner


This live Zoom class provides the perfect format to actively immerse yourself in the creative process.  Explore the back-and-forth conversation you have with your materials and mark-making to create paintings that engage and even surprise you as they develop depth and visual resonance.  Learn to hone your critical eye and personal intuition as you use color, mark, space, and texture as the means to encapsulate your unique artistic voice.  Class discussions will be focused upon in depth investigations of master painters, and on informing and encouraging your practice, in order to help you make the paintings you want to make.

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will obtain a grounding in the history of modernist painting.
  • Students will learn to compose compositions through editing, making and interaction with material.
  • Students will learn color mixing and color relationships.
  • Students will be challenged in their thinking towards painting.
