Time : 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Teacher : May Jong
Type : Adult Drawing Class
Artist May Jong explores the relationship between representational and nonobjective art in the Museumís collections. Participants look at European paintings from the 14th to 18th centuries as well as Asian sculpture and compare them with works from the modern collection. They learn to break down representational images into basic compositional elements to then create original works of art. Conversely, they reconstruct figurative imagery using abstract works as inspiration. Discover the vital role that color, shape/form and composition play in art making.
Using Value and Color
Continuing to examine the collection, the class focuses on the use of line and shape along with color in a composition. Participants create different values of the same color, working with color harmonies as well as other color techniques by breaking down a representational image into a nonobjective image.
All levels of experience are welcome. Each class is $20 ($16 for members), and space is limited to 18 participants. All materials and admission to the galleries on the day of class are included. Advance registration is required.
