About the Class

In his book The Art in Painting, Dr. Barnes described the benefits of learning to see through an artist’s eyes. “The artist must open our eyes to what unaided we could not see,” he wrote. “To appreciate a painting, poem, or symphony, we must reconstruct his experience, so far as we are able, in ourselves.” Please join us for a full day of discussion focusing on the artistic process, from the initial concept to the choice of materials to the final product. Why do artists return to their studios day after day, year after year?
Capacity: 18 students
