Meets Tuesday evening once a month for 6 sessions
July 11, August 1, September 5, October 3, November 7, December 5
This class is for artists looking for accountability and assistance in their private work, work ethic, and careers. We will meet monthly for a group critique led by Mia. Each student will get to bring in paintings they are working on to have discussed by the group. Students are expected to bring one painting to the first class as an introduction to their work. Questions will be addressed around the works themselves, but also about galleries, work ethics, photography, and general art culture. Final class will be a slide lecture looking at past and current figurative artists.
Materials: Your favorite way to take notes (notebook, pen, laptop, iPad, etc.)
About the instructor:
Mia Bergeron’s interest in art was cultivated early on, beginning with continuous exposure to visual works through her parents’ graphic design firm in New York City. Mia has studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, and has studied and taught at the Charles H. Cecil Studio in Florence, Italy, a small private painting atelier primarily focused on the naturalistic tradition of such artists as Van Dyck, Velasquez, and John Singer Sargent. In May 2007, she was a national finalist for the American Artist Magazine Cover competition. In 2010, she was named one of the “Top 21 Artists Under 31 Years Old To Be Collected Now” by SouthWest Art Magazine. She has served as Adjunct Professor at UTC, a faculty member at the Art of the Portrait Conference in Atlanta, GA and a regular instructor at Townsend Atelier.
