Learn how to transform and interpret observations of nature into inspired works of art! Instructor Nathan Beard will lead you on a step-by-step process beginning with a walk through Hammock Park in Dunedin to take reference photos for paintings and drawings. Students will be asked to digitally alter those photos to any degree they wish and then complete paintings/drawings over the course of 6 Saturdays. Students should be prepared to experiment with several different media. This course is excellent for students wanting to experiment with abstraction that is grounded in representation. Prerequisites will include basic painting and drawing classes and access to a basic photo-editing computer program at home.
The first class will meet at Hammock Park in Dunedin. Please make sure your contact information is up-to-date, and check your email for details from the instructor.
Ages 17 and up.
