  • Working in a Series with Nancy Cheairs

    October 10th - November 7th | 5 Sessions

    The emphasis of this class is individual artistic development and personal vision. Each student will develop their own thematically guided series that will deepen their artistic practice through two fundamentals: technique and visual thinking. Visual thinking teaches how to communicate a feeling, idea or a vision and how to reach into one’s own life for content and inspiration. Technique includes learning about composition, color, light, texture and space while gaining confidence with paint. Explore new possibilities within your work by expanding your visual vocabulary and confidence with paint. Students may work in the painting medium of their choice.
