About This Class

db3f6cb9

Mary Blair was a force, rocking through the art world with her gorgeous work! If you admire illustration, animation or design, you've seen her influence. Her style was unabashedly vibrant, surprisingly flat, and deeply emotive. Her career spanned over iconic films to pop culture art. 

We will take in her work, notice its earmarks, and apply inspiring principles to our own. You will be guided through three project exercises that each mark an era of her career, a simple principle, and a different medium to really experiment and experience a taste of Mary Blair's creative journey. 

This documentary-style class includes the voices of these respected artists: 

Brigette Baragger • Jeff Granito • Jill Howarth • Ira MarcksAnn Shen

Their full interviews will be on YouTube soon!
