Intermediate Painting

Intermediate - 🖌️🖌️

Instructor: Carol Rubin

Thursdays, 10am-1pm, begins April 18

10 weeks, In-person / Room 3A



This class is designed to help students with some painting experience advance to a greater understanding of composition, color orchestration, space, paint handling, and rendering.  Students will be guided to see with the artist’s eye and discover how to make paintings that resonate with a personal voice.   Abstract decision-making will be explored, where form, mark, gesture and color play a deliberate role in producing work that speaks clearly, if non-verbally.  We will focus on color and gesture as primary tools in this process.

We will work from still life, the model, and interior spaces.  Setups are likely to include a variety of non-traditional elements designed to help push past habits of simple literal representation.


Who is this class for:  This class is for those who have completed the  Introduction/Beginning Painting sequence at WSS or who possess basic painting and rendering skills and a solid understanding of values.

If you are unsure if a class is right for you, please read our Pathway To Sucess: A Guide or have a conversation with a Faculty member or our Head of Faculty before the first week of the term comes to an end. Once the second week of classes starts, no refunds will be offered.
