In this class, students will consider many of the diverse approaches that exist in Contemporary Painting.  Using the vast resources of the current Los Angeles Painting Scene, students will be empowered to carve out their own approach.  Specific techniques and concepts will be addressed as students create individual projects.  Lectures, demonstrations and critiques will be part of the experience.  The fourth class will consist of a Saturday field trip to view painting exhibitions at Los Angeles galleries.  Some prior painting experience is required. Quinton Bemiller studied at Pasadena City College, the Art Institute of Boston and Claremont Graduate University (MFA), and has also taught painting at Brand Art Center, Glendale and at private workshops in the Los Angeles area.

Building Forms/ Sculpture

Instructor: Penelope Young
$120 for six sessions
Location: Gallery 825
This course is designed to quickly immerse students into sculptural techniques and concepts. Over six weeks we will explore how to construct forms from various materials. These skills will help students explore different materials that can be used to process ideas more three-dimensionally. We will look at various artists that overlap 2-D and 3-D in their work. Projects involve construction techniques in wire  and found objects to name a few. Students will be encouraged to examine the structures and process of how things are built both in and outside of the art context. Penny Young received her MFA from California State University Northridge and has also studied at Cal State Long Beach and University of California Santa Barbara. She has a long teaching history in 3-D Design and Ceramics and taught most recently at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts and Cal State University Northridge.
