“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.” Alberto Giacometti
Students will learn about drawing and painting from observation while focusing on making successful creative choices. During this workshop students will observe real objects, and learn to translate the physical world to the representational via drawing and painting. Precursory sketches and a final mixed media piece will be created. Students will look to Wayne Thiebaud, Giorgio Morandi, Paul Cézanne, and Henri Matisse for inspiration.
Some paint and brushes are provided by the SAA. Students should bring their own canvas (any shape/size, but no smaller than 14 X 14, please!) and a #2 pencil on the first day. Other materials are supplied by the SAA. Art supplies are available at Artist and Craftsman and Blick Art, both in Central Square, Cambridge.
This class meets four Tuesdays from 8:00-10:30pm in the 2D Studio (W20-425) and is taught by Nicole Tariverdian.
