Overview

This course is primarily for people who want to extend their creative horizons. Even those who have no painting skills and have little knowledge of photography can learn this craft. It does not, however, preclude those who already possess photography or painting skills. Imagination and ingenuity are the chief requisites for creating beautiful images - images that use techniques described in unpretentious prose along with easy to follow diagrams and instructions.

Throughout, no sophisticated photographic equipment is required. Like any craft, whether a person can use these skills professionally is dependent upon the prowess of the artist. The course describes how to create beautiful miniatures and portraits as well images both surreal and abstract.

Through art one learns the meaning of life. (Ernst Kris, psychoanalyst.)

Modules

Learning to paint a print, discovering shapes, images from unlikely materials.

Portraiture: Different ways of painting faces, the self-portrait, miniatures.
