Painting Structures will focus on representing the historic structures of Atlanta, ID. Day one will be devoted to making drawing studies from direct observation of the unique and historic buildings of Atlanta. Participants will make paintings based on their studies and will be focused on drawing out the “presence” of these buildings, highlighting the mysterious hold they can have on the imagination. As an introduction we will consider the American Modernist works of Edward Hopper and Charles Burchfield.
