Narrative Painting: The Pot Liquor of Existence


Inspired by a quote by 20th century writer and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, in speaking about her life’s work, “Folklore is the pot liquor of human existence”, this course focuses on creating work with storytelling at its heart. From participants who draw stick figures or amateur cartoons, to artists with more advanced training, emphasis is on imagination and productivity over the acquisition of technical skills. Students create a minimum of three two-dimensional artworks while exploring narrative painting including autobiographical, biographical, personal, historical, mythological, sequential art, genre scene, social commentary, and current topics and issues. Course includes lecture, discussion, readings, as well as group and individual critique.

Prerequisite: None
