The Painting Project Studio Online, Mountain Time

Dates & Times

September 21 - December 14 2021
Tuesdays, 10:00am - 12:00pm




Meeting LIVE Online for 7 sessions.


Over the course of a few months we will be gathering online, every other week, to discuss writings related to art, painting and relevant culture.  We’ll be reading from a variety of sources.  The following will be discussed — with each session we will be turning to a new selection:

  • Andrew Forge, “Painting and the Struggle for the Whole Self”, an essay from Observation: Notation – Collected Writings of Andrew Forge
  • John Berger, “Steps Towards a Small Theory of the Visible (for Yves)”, from The Shape of a Pocket
  • James Elkins, selections from What Painting Is
  • Mary Jane Jacob, selections from Dewey for Artists
  • John Berger, “A Professional Secret”, from Keeping a Rendezvous
  • Richard Shiff, selections from Cezanne and the End of Impressionism
  • Gillian Pederson-Krag, the opening essay to her self-published monograph

Excerpts will be designated and prepared beforehand. Jordan will be facilitating the discussion in a supportive and friendly atmosphere.  Wine and nibbles recommended, although not essential.  Open to painters and non-painters, of all persuasions, world-wide.
