“Paint Like” Jim Dine

Partnership with DukeCreate & VisArts

Taught by Christine Holton

About the Workshop

Join DukeCreate and Duke University Union (DUU) committee member, VisArts, at our second “Paint Like” offering of the Spring semester!

Jim Dine is a 20th century contemporary artist, who has long been a self-described romantic artist. He has a strong interest in popular imagery and commercial objects, and embraced the heart as a template through which he could explore relationships of color, texture, and composition. Students can experience the same as we create a heart-themed finished piece influenced by the pop art work of Jim Dine.
