Afternoon Painting (SSI)

About This Activity

Students may work in oil or pastel. Special emphasis will be placed on color, structure, value, and composition. Figurative painting will be approached in a broad, abstract way. Students will be encouraged to deal with the entire canvas, not just the parts, developing each painting as a whole.
