Advanced Painting

Tuesday, April 1 – Tuesday, June 3, 7 – 10 pm (10 weeks)
Members $450 | Public $530

Advance your painting skills through experimentation and experiencing the AGO collections. Explore colour, composition and painting techniques in both representation and abstraction. This course is geared to students with some painting experience and basic techniques who would like to evolve and advance their painting practice leading towards the development of a personal voice and process. Students will explore the principles of composition, rendering, colour mixing and theory. Supported by self-motivating mechanisms, students will begin to create a visual language. Each week this course will take students through exercises and techniques that will build an experimental approach and process to image and execution. Each lesson will broaden one's idea of painting with repeatable techniques for home. Philosophical and scientific ideas will be introduced through examples from the AGO collections and current exhibitions. A group critiques/ discussion will follow each session. Students are responsible for the purchase of their own materials. A material list will be provided on the first day of class.

Please note there are no classes on Monday April 21 or Monday May 19.
