Narrative Figure Painting

July 21, 2019 – July 27, 2019

Danielle Mužina

By exploring composition, experimenting with format, expanding mark making vocabularies and manipulating color, this workshop provides students with new strategies for storytelling. Participants interested in using the figure for narrative, allegorical, or conceptual goals will strengthen their observational practice and delve deeper into creating evocative images. During class you will spend time painting from direct perception and learning to edit and direct paintings by adding and subtracting information. Students will work to distill the distinct poetry of the image by questioning visual hierarchies and infusing traditional life painting with contemporary attitudes about materials and sources. Open to all skill levels.
