FULL: Painting Resource (B): Intro-adv, Wed, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
This stimulating course, in its tenth year, is getting more popular. This experience is for those who are at a turning point of their painting culture. You already know the great principles of colours, shapes, perspective, and you are at ease in your medium, may it be oil, acrylic, or watercolour; and if you are not, it is not important. But it seems that is always the notion of content which seems to interfere with your creativity; the three “Cs”: content, concept, context. What should I paint? Where should I go? Why I am repeating? Why am I imitating? Where is my creativity? In brief, how can I become authentic as an emerging artist? It is within this framework that we will try, together, to answer these questions, crucial to art making.

FULL: The Ancient Technique of Icon Painting - Part I: Intro-adv, Tues 6 - 9 pm
In this course, students of all levels of artistic skills will create egg-tempera paintings by exploring forgotten medieval techniques of making Byzantine icons. We will learn how to apply Gold leaf on handcrafted wood-panels and mix pigments with homemade emulsion and gesso. We will also learn how and why these ancient artistic methods influenced contemporary art and visual culture.  For this reason, Byzantine art theory of color, drawing, and composition will be used to discover a new artistic medium and mode seeing images for creative self-expression.  This will be done first via a series of exercises and lectures to understand the steps of painting exemplary Byzantine icons. In following this historical art form, students will paint next a contemporary “personal icon” on a wood-panel based on images and visual composition of their chose.
