Marc Josloff’s Artist’s Statement:

As an artist I am strongly influenced by those art modalities that have moved me: impressionism, post-impressionism, expressionism, fauvism, the art of the nabis, Japanese woodcuts and you can add in constructivism and even classicism. I guess I’m a bit of an artistic anachronism. (lots of ‘isms’)..and yet I am also a creature of today’s world, so I can’t help but reflect on both the past and present in my work.  

Yet the objective for me is not to emulate past art or contemporary, but to imbue my work with pathos, whether my subject be a street dweller or a head of cabbage, because that is what connects us…as vulnerable human beings.

Painting for fun should be a loose romp with line and color.

A paintbrush passport to the world, right from your home, concentrating on various categories (people, animals, plants, architecture, still lifes, landscape, etc.) while you learn traditional and experimental watercolor techniques. Get a comfort level with perspective and people in your drawing. World music included!

This is an online class so you’ll be in the studio virtually with Marc. Enjoy the learning, the humor, the motivational art stories and the constructive encouragement.  Gain inspiration from the camaraderie of the group and the input of the other students.

A national and international award-winning artist, Marc has also been a master teacher for over 50 years.
