Event description
Painting Heroes and HeroinesLaura Pacchini + Jeannie Whelan Pettigrew8 sessions >> Saturdays, February 15- April 410:00am-1:00pm, FMC STE 26, $385
Heroes and heroines surround us. We find them in everyday life, film, television, books, mythology and more. Working from an individual's perspective we will examine the role of the hero in the historical canon of painting  as well as present day use. Through guided-discussions, students will be asked to consider who and why their heroes/heroines are, and form a painting depicting them in a way to convey their relevance and importance. The class will be focused on working in oil, but students may use oil, acrylic, watercolor, graphite, markers, colored pencil, ink, etc.
____Laura Pacchini is a painter in San Francisco having shown internationally, holds an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, and BA from Denison University (Art History and Painting). Her work deals with whistleblowers, heroes and heroines that often exist invisibly in our quotidian life as well as those whom we carry forth in our collective conscience.  She finds the small choices people make that change the course of life for the better to be fascinating.
She is an Artist-in-Residence at San Francisco Arts Education Project — teaching at Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy, public elementary school and is working with the education department through the Fine Arts of San Francisco at the Legion of Honor.
