Prerequisite: Recent college or extension-level courses in both drawing and painting required.
Through visual and verbal analysis, students will increase the power of their work and overcome blocks that hinder the completion of paintings. The course will explore the content of each student’s art through irony, humor, narrative, mood, and the use of unusual materials. Individual instruction and technical assignments will help students explore a particular style and become more independent by painting in series.
“Glenn intensifies our strengths, encourages exploration, and offers examples in his slide presentations of methods and components of successful creative efforts. His upbeat presence is contagious—and he plays great music.”
