This course is an exploratory and studio-driven class which will discuss the notion of painting during the Renaissance as a scholarly act. Artists in the 15th and 16th century often carried with them a myriad of other disciplines from literature to science into the studio. Starting from the conceptual narrative to the finished painting, students will learn all the measures taken to create a painting using traditional Renaissance tools and processes, such as metalpoint.

About the Instructor

Born in Georgetown, D.C. in 1992, Darryl Babatunde Smith started making art as a way of interpreting foreign languages as opposed to translating them in English. He studied French, German, and Latin in high school and later began to learn Ancient Greek and Italian on his own. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he completed his BFA in Painting, and at the New York Academy of Art where he obtained his MFA in Drawing an Anatomy. Through Darryl's knowledge of Latin and Ancient Greek he immerses himself in antiquity. Darryl uses Greco-Roman symbols and traditional Renaissance techniques to connect personal narratives with classical literature. His metalpoint and egg tempera works show how ideas from antiquity live on today.

Darryl's drawings have been featured in Fine Arts Connoisseur's website and in Artists on Art's digital magazine. His work has been exhibited in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Hillsdale, Michigan; Reykjavík, Iceland; and New York City. In the past two years he has been awarded three residences in Iceland, Italy, and Greece, where he created work inspired by the landscape and ancient artifacts. Recently his metalpoint and egg tempera works have been exhibited in Assisi, Italy and Athens, Greece.
