Online: Figure Artists who want to Learn Hofmann’s Push/Pull Theory
Hofmann’s theory of pushing and pulling a composition on a two-dimensional surface is best understood when working from life. The course begins with a lecture on Hofmann’s push/pull theory by viewing his work and his students’ work (Search for the Real) in the PAAM collection. You will draw to warm up through guided exercise, real-time critique and affirming feedback. Each artist, no matter what their level of experience, will leave with a direct experience of the natural law of push/pull and how it shaped modern art; and, how it will shape you.
