Finding Your Voice as an Artist

Danny analyzes the work of Venetian Master Jacopo Tintoretto. He will begin with a draw-over analysis, identifying key characteristics in Tintoretto’s work. He then puts pencil to paper to further illustrate these stylistic elements. Following that, he analyzes the work of American painter Thomas Hart Benton and his use of silhouette and simultaneous contrast in his paintings, murals, and lithographs. Danny urges you to glean techniques from the masters just as Benton did with Tintoretto as you solidify your personal artistic style.
