24 Community Education | 559.327.2876 COMMUNITY EDUCATION ■ CREATIVE ARTS ART ART EXPLORATION: PAINTING AND PLAY This course is akin to a series of miniworkshops in which you will experiment with various supplies, embrace play in mark-making, and ref lect on what you are drawn to in your own art-making. You will also learn how to stretch your own canvas. This is geared towards practicing artists and those with prior art experience who would like to break out of comfort-habits, experiment, and ref lect on process. Beginners are welcome, yet this is a course about jumping in without fear of making something “look perfect”. Please note that this is NOT an “intro-learn-how-to-draw-and-paintstep-by-step”, representational-stylebased, or paint-and-sip-style course. If you are inspired by the creativity and fearlessness of children making art, this could be for you. Process over/as well as product, abstract expressionism, and contemporary approaches to mixedmedia are strong inf luences of this course. We will be using a variety of mediums and materials, conventional and otherwise (including but not limited to acrylic, oil pastel, and some supplies you may have last used as a kid). Students will supply their own supplies - a list will be provided. No class meeting 4/3, 4/10.
