Adding a Visual Historywith Vera Dickerson
8 classes: Tuesdays, September 24–November 12 • 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. • Same class offered on Thursdays, September 26–November 14 • $230
We can deepen the content of our paintings by including paper items which evoke a wealth of historic reference. Use your favorite subjects, but add old maps, pages from books, photos ( or scans), and your collection of collage papers as we work in acrylic paints on paper or canvas. After seeing a 50 year retrospective of Victoria Crowe’s work, I realize there is much we can learn in discovering and translating our own iconography into a creative expression which is ours alone.
