The history of illustrative images and the major movements in illustration are the focus of this course. The continuous interrelationships between commercial and fine art, as well as the changing role of the artist's effect on culture, will be explored. The course will also help students better understand the differences of metaphor in pictorial content and the universal symbolic vocabulary- where a rose is not just a ladder, and a dark horse is far from being just a dark horse.

Painting the Real World - From a Bed of Roses to the Gutter

Course Details
  • Course Number ILD-4621-A
  • Times Thursday, Friday, 9:00AM - 2:50PM
  • Dates May 28 - Jun 26
  • Credits 3.00
  • Cost$2550
  • Additional Fees$0
  • Status Open
  • Location 310 East 22nd Street

Description

Taught by renowned landscape painter Gregory Crane, whose work has been described by The New York Times as "an alchemical wedding of the mundane and the spiritual," this course is designed to take the advanced painting student out of the pristine studio and into the real world. You will travel to various locations: from deep inside the woods of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to the gritty warehouse rooftops of Red Hook. Mr. Crane will unlock many of the mysteries on how to depict atmospheric phenomena and give you a greater understanding of the growth and rhythm of natural forms, and how to record them quickly and beautifully. You will learn how to compose pictures of dynamic intensity, abstracted from observation. The Crane experience en plein air has been treasured by many great painters and illustrators for over two decades. You will never see the world the same way again; this course will bring poetry to your images. NOTE: The first session will meet in Brooklyn's Prospect Park, at the Long Meadow (just off Grand Army Plaza).
