This class will focus on creating paintings that tell a story. By using literary elements, students will learn how to convey a narrative that can be both personal and have a strong visual impact. Using elements such as time, place, characters, and character traits, students will create a painting or paintings that highlight their individual interests. Students will learn basic composition and how to make work that will resonate with a broad audience. The class will take into account different skill levels, using the student’s individual abilities and natural mark making.
