Aesthetics of Painting

Realizing a personal aesthetic and why it arises depends on how well we understand the interlocking facts of technical skill, vision, philosophy and process. We shall discuss short excerpts of text each class that make claims about inspiration, aesthetic value, truth, subjectivity, the intellectual eye, and a philosophy of being. Art making will follow each discussion to realize some of the topic’s relevance each week. Come explore the ways and thoughts of art.
