IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you are not a beginning student and have more painting experience: 

We have provided extensive video resources that show our instructors painting in real time. Once you have understood the gist and steps of the painting lesson, you may choose to fast forward or skip over some of the more lengthy sequences. This is up to you. Novice painters may benefit from seeing all the sequences in real time, however, we recommend you paint along with the instructor in a way that best fits your skill level or viewing preference.

So What is Black Figure Pottery Painting?

If you ever wondered how you might benefit from taking a class like this, let's first think about how much the Greeks impacted the way we speak in regards to language. The Greeks were always on the cutting edge of change and discovery. So too were they on the cutting edge of art.

Greek pottery was a reflection of the social times and has become a fun way for us modern day artists to explore the early styles of ornamentation and design.

The Greek styles of ornamentaion have influenced art and architecture throughout many eras. Still today Greek designs are popular and ever more prominant. They can seen decorating dinnerware, artwork, woodwork, fabrics, masonry, and even furniture.

 

The Greeks used color in unique ways. Their painting applications were modified to fit the surfaces they painted on. Their red clay pottery has become well known for the detailed motifs used to adorne these containers, known as Black Figure Vases. This class places the focus on how they used color and how they might have decorated a traditional Greek Vase.

As the class moves forward, the student has a good understanding of the painting applications and proceeds to paint the first of two Greek Styled paintings. Teacher Gaby Hunter, takes over from teacher Connie Clark and Sue Pruett as she now helps you recreate a little history!
