Paint Like a Girl: East Meets West

Paint Like a Girl: East Meets West

The east coast may lay claim to Abstract Expressionism, but on the west coast we have Bay Area Figuration.  In this new iteration of Paint Like a Girl, we will focus on the influence of the two schools and the contributions of female painters to both movements. This is your chance to get in touch with your female powerhouse painter and let go of the confines of representation. We will also explore the methods and practices of some of the best contemporary painters working today.  The class has been extended to 7 sessions over 9 weeks.

In class projects, research assignments and inspired group critiques make this a rich and vigorous experience.  MFLGBT are all welcome to discover how to let go of past assumptions about painting and connect with the abstract painter within.
