What to Expect
People that influenced him:

"I think Bacon is one of the greatest painters of all time. He's up there with Goya, Soutine and Van Gogh: dirty painters who wrestle with the dark stuff. He's complicated. It's not essentially about formal skill or technique or dexterity. It's about belief. I believe!"
"I kind of expected it to happen the way it did. My early paintings weren’t that good – I was very influenced by Francis Bacon. But there was a kind of intensity there. And however influenced they may have been by other people, even my earliest paintings were recognisably my own. If I hung one of my paintings next to someone else’s, I knew mine would kind of pop off the wall"
Wayne McGregor a British choreographer of modern contemporary dance was inspired by Bacon’s work to create, L'Anatomie de la sensation, for the Opéra de Paris in 2011
Shark's Jaw, Skull and Iguana on a Table, 2008

On "Lesson Days" students are to put all technology away. Technology (phones, iPods, etc.) that are out during the lesson will be taken for the remainder of the class period.
During lessons students are to have eyes and ears on the teacher.
Please note the section on tardies and absences. Not only do tardies and absences impact you as a learner negatively, but they also interrupt class. Please be respectful and come to class on time.
Grades are negatively impacted by poor attendance.
Please see the class website. On it you will find the class blog, my email, and other very important information. Let's go over the rules.
"Picasso is the reason why I paint. He is the father figure, who gave me the wish to paint."
" Velazquez found the perfect balance between the ideal illustration which he was required to produce, and the overwhelming emotion he aroused in the spectator."
Untitled (Two Figures in the Grass), c. 1952.

Welcome to Ms. Rapp's Class!
