We make better paintings when we have a deeper understanding of the work of other painters. With slides and books, Mr. Feltus will explain how painters speak to us through their paintings—how we find answers to our questions when we learn to see the abstract structure, how color works, and what lies beneath the reading of subject matter or narrative. Students will draw compositional analyses of paintings and make collage studies of color.

Alan Feltus is an American painter who has lived outside of Assisi, Italy since 1987. He has been represented by Forum Gallery (New York) since the mid-1970s. Mr. Feltus studied for one year at Tyler School of Art (Philadelphia) before transferring to Cooper Union, where he earned his BFA (1966).  He then continued to Yale to earn his MFA (1968). Mr. Feltus has taught at the Dayton Art Institute (1968-70) and at the American University, DC (1970-84). He has won several fellowships and grants, including a Rome Prize Fellowship, and has had an extensive exhibition record. For more information, please visit
