Trompe L’oeil and Photorealism

Instructor: Patrick Kirwin
"I Need More Yarn in my Art," by Patrick Kirwin

The difference between Photo Realism and Trompe L’oeil is one of composition. This class includes instruction on those differences, as well as techniques for making texture, and creating a perfect illusion. New students work on an introductory project encompassing various techniques. Experienced participants have a choice of independent projects or projects designed by the instructor. Acrylics are used to speed up the process of learning but experienced artists are encouraged to use oils. Any mediums welcome. A list of recommended supplies must be picked up from the School Store located in room 217 of the Torpedo Factory.
