with Patrick J. Reed
This workshop is an introduction to the expressive and versatile medium of painting. Starting with basic color theory, learn how to mix colors and achieve a unified color world. Through exercises designed to show the difference between hue and value, or the relationship between complimentary colors, we sharpen our understanding of how colors interact and how to mix paint. Learn step by step how to approach making a painting, exploring techniques for layering and using brushstrokes to create form and space.
While the focus is on painting from direct observation, such as from a still-life, there are still opportunities to explore individual style and personal expression. We will look to examples from both art history and contemporary art for technical and conceptual insights. A field trip to contemporary art galleries is a great opportunity to learn about Berlin's art scene and current trends in painting.
Non-toxic acrylic paint will be supplied.
