Previous students rave about Scott Burnett’s commitment to creating a “safe place & affirming community,” with “lots of creative, expressive energy.”
Making art on a wood surface is a great way to jump into a visual conversation that’s already underway!
Wood grain infers kinetic flow and traces shapes, both obvious and implied. Textures vary across the surface, drawing out different responses from our paints, inks, graphites, and other art media. We’ll let the grain inform and inspire our creative responses, seeing where it leads us and what discoveries we can make along the way.
This class is appropriate for beginners, and will also be relevant to experienced artists that want to exercise their “beginner mind”. Ages 14+
A few snapshots from Scott’s previous classes at the Guild:
What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?
Classes will begin with a description of our direction for the day, and we’ll have time for sketchbook-journaling. We’ll take time each morning for conversation around the table. As the week progresses, we’ll go deeper and deeper into the paint. Throughout class time, I will give mini demos of techniques such as layering, glazing, palette knife, etc.
Participants wishing to create complex or ambitious projects should expect to spend additional time working outside of class.
Most participants can expect to create one finished painting (18×18”) and 4 to 6 experimental surfaces.
What should I bring to class?
Please bring a sketchbook or journal — or even just a plain pad… something for capturing thoughts and processing ideas. All other necessary materials will be provided; however, students are invited to bring their own paint kit, a painting that has lost its way, etc. Please mark any personal painting materials clearly prior to the start of class!
