Please note, this the third session of a three session class, ticket purchase is required and includes all sessions. The previous sessions take place on Mondays, November 9 and 16, at 6 pm.

Discover painting techniques and processes that explore your personal history and cultural inspirations in this three-session workshop, led by contemporary artist Jaqueline Cedar and inspired by the wild array of representational painting styles on view in the exhibition Unorthodox.

Jaqueline Cedar holds an MFA in Painting from Columbia University and a BA in Art from University of California, Los Angeles. Cedar's work addresses such issues as self-awareness, control, and immobility, staging a potential but arrested movement toward knowledge or engagement. By arranging figures as armatures for hanging line and color, her paintings construct scenarios in which subjects behave both as backdrops and participants, observers and actors. Selected exhibitions of Jaqueline’s work include 106 Green, Fredericks & Freiser, and Dutton in New York, and Wharton + Espinosa in LA. She has also been featured in The Huffington Post and New American Paintings. She has also been featured in The Huffington Post and New American Paintings. Her work is included in the current Next Wave exhibition at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. 

Course Fee: $50; $40 for members. All materials included in course fee.
