Paint Lab: 52 Exercises Inspired by Artists, Materials, Time, Place, and Method Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Paint Lab is packed with unique and experimental techniques and ideas in painting. Organized into 52 units, which may, but don't need to be explored on a weekly basis.

Synopsis:

Deborah Forman is a practicing artist and a passionate teacher of art with seventeen years’ experience instructing students from ages 2 to 80. Currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Wheaton College and an Instructor in Continuing Education at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Deborah specializes in teaching the fundamentals: drawing, 2D design, color theory, beginning to advanced painting, and conceptual approach to painting and materials. In her own painting practice, Deborah works within the realm of geometric abstraction, with emphasis on the phenomena of color interaction.
 
Deborah received intensive training in the fundamentals and application of aesthetics and design at RISD, one of the nation’s premier higher education institutions for art and design, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1992. She went on to earn a Master of Science in Art Education degree from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1996, a school whose progressive pedagogical program has a focal philosophy that teaching is an art form itself, where the emphasis is on process over product, and the importance of play and risk-taking are stressed as being integral to artistic growth. Deborah immersed herself in the New York City art world during her Master of Fine Arts in painting program at the prestigious Parsons School of Design, where she specialized in post-modern theory and contemporary art, graduating in 2001.
 
Deborah has exhibited her paintings locally in Rhode Island as well as in various venues in the New England region. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with her illustrator husband, Matthew Finger, and their four year-old son Nathaniel.
