Expressive Contemporary Painting 1F19


Embrace a non-representational, process-focused approach to painting. Use brushes, colors and new approaches to communicate feelings and emotions that set up a dialog between painter and viewer. Continue to develop your own style while looking at methods and techniques of related contemporary artists. Class includes discussions, critiques, time for self-reflection and plenty of individual attention from the teacher.

Limit 10 students

John Murray

John Murray

John Murray's paintings are high relief combinations of sculpture and Abstract Expressionism, meshed in the power of texture and the motion of brushstrokes. Somehow, his paintings are a harmony of subtle simplicity disguised by a frenzy of colors and buzzing energy. For more than 40 years he has explored his visual aesthetic through painting, printmaking and assemblage. He has published three poetry chapbooks and two graphic chapter books. He has been teaching for more than 30 years.

John studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and exhibits throughout the Northeast.
