Barnes Foundation Student

I am the recipient of the 2-year Richard J. Wattenmaker Scholarship working toward a Barnes-de Mazia Certification in the objective Barnes Method.

“These courses, derived from the teachings of Albert Barnes and Violette de Mazia, focus on rigorous close looking and analysis.”

This is my final project for Traditions of Art with William Perthes:  utilizing the Barnes collection as a guide & visual aide, we explored the elements of art through history.  Working with my Elan Creative team, I infused my flash fiction for “Silhouette Story” with Barnes vocabulary.  I then utilized the plastic understanding of our composition to compare our piece to historic works with similar interest in line, light, color, & space.
