Fields of Study

This is an introductory course exploring the principles of representational painting and compositional aesthetics. Students will create personalized scenes using food and found objects as a basis for still-life painting studies.  The course content will encourage experimentation with a range of achromatic techniques that provide the foundation for further exploration using color.  Assignments will lead toward individually informed compositions that culminate in a final painting project.  Lectures include introductions to new projects with examples of contemporary painting and art historical references. Demonstrations cover introduction to the medium of paint, composition, perspective, color theory, and technique.
