About the class:
Let’s paint animals! This course will introduce students to the exciting and unique world of watercolor painting. Using watercolors students will paint both wild and domesticated animals, focusing on creating texture and realistic features. Demos on anatomy and techniques will be included daily. Info: firstname.lastname@example.org. Minimum age 15.
Ally is a mixed media artist, mostly focusing on watercolor, pens, and colored pencils. Inspired by the lectures of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, she endeavors to explore the identity of the “Animal Other” as well as her own personal relationship with them in her artwork. Derrida suggested that “the animal looks at us and we are naked before it… thinking perhaps starts here.” This statement about seeing the animal and the animal confronting and returning our gaze has continued to lead Ally’s artistic investigation throughout the years.
Ally received her BFA in painting from Salisbury University and she received her MFA in drawing and painting from Arizona State University.
