With a strong base from Using Color and Memory as your Defining Tools Part I, the journey continues. Now students will explore composition, color, memory and means as a way to expand their potential for creative expression and create paintings. We will break down the painting process into manageable pieces and students will be encouraged to work outside their comfort zones. 

We will continue:
*our study of design through notan/ value shapes
*simplification of the landscape through color response- smalls
* emotional and full body response to a memorized image through the Secret Santa

We will begin:
*different methods for underpainting to create vibration
*abstracting the landscape
*exploring color temperature
*breaking down the structure of creating a painting into small, manageable parts so that you can create strong, authentic work. 

Each week, through demonstrations, conceptual powerpoints, classroom discussions and individual attention, we will delve into a piece of the painting puzzle and open up the door for new solutions.

“We are obliged to surprise people.” Wolf Kahn. How does one do that?

Loriann Signori, with the landscape as her muse, is a creator of luminosity. She allows nature to teach her about color, light and movement. Her work is based in traditional methods, defined by colorist tendencies, and memory. As life- long painter, she received her BFA from Swain School of Design and MFA at American University, but the real work began outdoors and in the studio. Loriann is a faculty member of Pastel Society of America. She is an award-winning artist who has exhibited her work in galleries and museums across the country and won numerous awards.
