Painting Studio, Room 244
Christine Hartman

Open to all levels, this workshop explores the development of light, space, color and form. We will work from still life and Master copies studying the subleties of composition in our beautiful light filled studio. Students can expect to complete two paintings over the two week period. Small class size will allow for individualized instruction. Students will provide their own materials, we will work in oil paint. For those new to oil painting, a materials list will be made available. Eight sessions.

Christine Hartman received her BFA degree with honors from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA degree from Brooklyn College. She also studied at Parsons School of Design on a Helena Rubinstein Foundation Grant and at the New York Studio School’s summer program in Paris. A traditional figurative painter with an appreciation of modern esthetics she has pursued the study of compositional theory through the genre of the still life. “What interests me about composition is the creation of movement, through connections and tensions throughout the painting. I feel it is these elements that keep the viewer engaged and the painting lively.” Hartman is a member of the Zeuxis group of still life painters and has regularly exhibited at the Bowery Gallery, NYC and at numerous galleries in the New York and Connecticut region. Hartman’s work has been reviewed in both New York and Connecticut publications and online venues including art critical and examiner.com.
