The physical, magical, expressive beauty and the metaphorical meaning of flowers and the human figure have been a source of endless inspiration to artists throughout history. Both floral still life’s and the human figure have been employed by artists around the world as a form of creative self-expression. In this intensive course, students will explore techniques and concepts in floral painting with an emphasis on its relationship with the human figure in both interior and exterior spaces. Various expressions in both representational and abstract approaches to floral/figure painting will be investigated. Students will work both from flower/figure arrangements in the classroom and in the landscape, discovering how a basic image can be transformed into a personal statement through the process of painting.
Students will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of ideas and techniques, with the purpose of developing a personal expression. The principles developed through observational work will lead to exploration into the limitless possibilities of painting, and various approaches to representational and abstract painting will be investigated.
Individual and group critiques and discussions will be held regularly and focus will be given to each individual student in context of the shared experience of the class.
Power point presentations of works from old masters and contemporary artists will be presented to complement studio and landscape projects in classes.
Includes 24-hour access to the painting studio between class sessions, model fees, easels/gatorboards, and general studio supplies.
