Session #4: Diebenkorn Figure

May 9 – June 6, 2017

Class Description

Master Class Concepts: Challenge #4 – Diebenkorn Figure

During this 5 week session, we will focus on the artist Richard Diebenkorn as his figural work.  Diebenkorn had a way of creating figures as strong shapes in a shallow semi-abstract background that is worth studying in depth.  We will create multiple small studies and at least two 18x18 paintings during this class.  Our challenge and focus will be to understand how to see the figure and background as a series of designed shapes to create a semi-abstract composition. If you feel your figurative work is uninteresting even though your proportions are accurate, this is the class to break free of that!

Materials needed: (2) 18x18 canvases
