In this course I will teach you how to build up and interpret narrative through the traditional aspects of painting and drawing. How the use of color and brush strokes offer different story interpretations through studio practice as well as art history. Discovering by making.

In my course you will get a hands on teaching approach. One on one with each student. The beginning of each course will discuss what you want to do with the art you make, followed by the making of the art with discussions and showing you examples of how other artists approach subject matters. At the end of each course will be a critique. A studio visit of contemporary working artists will be set up for the students to meet and see how a professional working studio exists in Berlin.

Program for a 10 week course
Week one: Getting to know your art.
Week two: Color as narrative
