ABOUT THIS CLASS
This new class will follow the path of art history, to help the student develop strong classical training along with an impressionistic color sense.
Classical training focuses on building the skills for depicting three-dimensional form, for using chiaroscuro to create dramatic settings, and to get an accurate likeness. It is foundational. Impressionism focuses on building skills for the artistic use of color; for seeing and mixing sensitive colors, for using color and brushwork to evoke emotion. The marriage of these skills will result in better paintings.
