Event description

Description

An introduction to thinking, drawing and painting in an abstract manner. Pulling ques from reality, we will use the still life, surrounding landscape, and photographs as input for abstraction. Students will explore mark marking techniques, build color palettes, and trick their minds in thinking differently through a series of non-traditional drawing and painting exercises. We will study the work of Henri Matisse, David Hockney, Robert Motherwell and Raimonds Staprans.

Supplies students must bring:

  • Newsprint
  • Charcoal
  • Still Life Supplies
  • Bristol Board (approx 12x16) - 4 sheets per person
  • Gesso
  • Acrylic Paint (watercolor could also work for this class)
  • Suggested Colors: Titanium white, Mars Black, Pthalo Blue, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow
  • Brushes in various sizes: Flat 3, 8 and Round 8, 12, 16
  • Palette Paper
  • Pencil
  • Fixative Spray

Provided by instructor:

  • Artist books
  • Pantone book + Color Swatches
  • Chalk pastel

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.
