    "Painting is learning to see.  Often, we paint what we think we see because we all have  preconceived notions of what something looks like.  However, to really paint what you see, you must break down everything you are looking at into just abstract shapes.  Don’t see a 'house', see a series of interlocking shapes." Aline Ordman

     Working from their own photo references, students will transform these into pastel paintings using the principles of color and design.  Along with daily painting demonstrations, Aline will emphasize the understanding of color in terms of temperature, intensity and value while translating those ideas using pastel technique.  Individual attention and group critiques will serve to help students in their efforts.


    10 AM until 5 PM, with a 1 hour lunch break
