Section Description

This painting class looks at and practices the watercolor medium as it connects to the larger history of art, from Chinese landscape painting to modernism to contemporary practices. Along the way we will learn the medium's unique formal capabilities, using technical experimentation to study color concepts, the construction of images, and ways of seeing. Abstract and representational modes of painting take place inside the studio and, weather permitting, in the Vermont landscape.
