“One also paints what lies between the apple and the plate. And believe me, it seems just as difficult to paint the 'in-between' as the thing itself” - Georges Braque.

Speaking simply and directly, Georges Braque reveals an essential element of visual art: negative space. Based on Braque’s practice of sketching variations of a still-life on small sheets of gridded paper, then using those studies to create intriguingly colorful paintings, this class will explore the importance of the “in-between” in painting.

Activities will include:

  • Making studies from Braque’s pencil sketches
  • Using Braque’s technique to create line drawings from a still-life subject
  • Studies of Braque’s color palette and choosing one’s own color harmony
  • Completion of a small color composition with water based paint on paper

A 15€ supply fee is included in the cost of this course. All materials are provided.

Open to all levels.
