Catherine Kehoe Portrait painting

The figure will be the point of departure for exploration of pictorial structure. We will walk the line between accuracy and abstraction in translating the figure into two dimensions, creating images in the simplest forms: shapes and colors made of paint. This rigorous and wide-ranging analysis of the motif will help us grasp relationships between figure/object and space. Mediums will include graphite, collage, and oil paint. One session will focus on the head. Student supply list is available online once you enroll in the class.
