Copies: Analysis and Variation


Start Date

Meeting Day




This online course features the following types of interaction:

  • Live meetings
  • Live critiques

We undertake analysis of works of art, not because we mean to copy them, but in order to set ourselves in motion.
— Paul Klee

Paintings from art history will be the point of departure for exploration of pictorial structure. We will work from paintings made prior to the 20 th century. Mediums will include graphite, charcoal, collage, acrylic and/or oil paint. Each participant will look deeply at a series of images and generate permutations through simplification and abstraction. This rigorous and wide-ranging analysis of images from our painting ancestors will feed our own work and imaginations as we engage with images that speak to us still.

This class is fully enrolled.
