Last month I taught an intensive painting course with the University of Victoria in Victoria, BC. I usually go up to Victoria every summer to do this, but of course this year everything has moved online.
One assignment that I teach is how to arrange and paint a still life. Then I have the students write a love song or poem to their painting. This is shared with the class during the critique. However, with the new online platform, I had to change this and requested that my students record their songs or poems instead.
I find that this is such a fun way to critique your own painting. Over the coming week, I will be posting some of the better assignments.
The following are just 2 of these assignments.
