Beyond the Box… Strategies to Expand Artistic Content with Rod Prouse
This course is no longer available. Please check back in 2020 to see if it will be offered again.
This course will teach students to create meaningful pieces of artwork by expressing themselves through mark making. Students will journey into the concept of subject and meaning through creating in a variety of subject matters in the formats of still life, abstraction, and landscape in order to add thoughtful content and inquiry to a chosen subject. Students will expand their mark-making and painterly expression skills, develop strategies to push subject matter in more purposeful directions, reach a higher level of authenticity in their work, and experiment with different mediums and colours that they may not have seen before. Please note that the instructor is allergic to oils, so only acrylics can be brought to class.
