Painter Michael Ottersen teaches students to utilize multiple references, experiences, subjective preferences and objective observations to create images.
This class with painter Michael Ottersen will explore the infinite possibilities of non-figurative or abstract painting in oil and/or acrylic paint. Utilizing multiple references, expereicnes, subjective preferences, and objective observations the student will create images about nothing and everything. Vision and process will be employed to dissect the beauties of mark making, color and value, compositional strategies, and engaging surfaces and textures. There will be no sprecific formula or style assumptions. All students will be encouraged to develop a personal visual language whether it's widly gestural, hard-edged geometiric or something hybrid and in-between.
Some previous painting experience preferred.
