How to Read a Painting with Artist Eyes

1 class- Saturday, October 19 - 9:30 am – 1:30 pm (bring a bag lunch or snack)

All Levels- from non-artist art enthusiast to advanced artist  

Description - Everyone sees a painting slightly differently, through a personal lens of preference and experience but what if you could read a painting from the artist perspective of visual language and art making?  This unique class looks at the elements and principles of design as a universal visual language that can be read by the viewer. Behind any painting are the artist’s intention and the form used to express that intention. The form, however unique, contains elements of the universal language of design. How do you read this visual language? What can it tell you about a painting? What can it tell you about the artist? What can it tell you about art making?

Part 1- Presentation- Visual Language: Understanding the elements and principles of design

Part 2- Presentation - Form and Content: Looking at the process of art making –what, why, how

Part 3- Gallery Walk- Putting it together: Review paintings in the Russel Gallery for visual language clues to the artist’s form and content.
