Course content: 

Topic: Portraits for the New Normal: Back to Life

This course examines the genre of portraiture in painting. It will draw from relevant histories and the contemporary moment to consider a resurging interest in the painted portrait today. In this politically tumultuous time the portrait has a renewed relevance. It is a uniquely apt, and charged, form to examine diverse subject positions, philosophies of self and identity, and relationships between individuals and the world.
In this course participants will engage with portrait painting, including approaches such as: working from life - creating portraits in real time through video conferencing, working within their social bubble and seeking additional creative and safe solutions for engaging as painters. 
There will be a focus on weekly discussions where a small group of students lead a review of a painting movie or podcast. 
Through artistic production, research, discussions, writing and critique, students are expected to increase their understanding of the content and context of their process and production as well as their knowledge of contemporary art. Critiques and discussions complement studio production.
