Event description

Description

An introduction to traditional landscape painting with an emphasis on expressive color and gestural mark. Students will explore the defining/subtle qualities of their determined place and the different ways this can be interpreted through traditional drawing, color studies, and a larger, more involved painting. We will look closely at the work of Edward Hopper, Richard Diebenkorn, Raimonds Staprans, Louisa Matthíasdóttir.

INSTRUCTOR Amanda K. Hawkins is a landscape painter, however, her paintings are not necessarily of a specific place, rather a collage of the many places on my mind. Her process is spontaneous and reactionary. She does not force her subject matter but instead lets the painting form organically. Hawkins lives in Boston, MA.
