Painting: Concepts and Techniques
Spring 2017 quarter
This course is intended as an overview of painting techniques, concepts, and related history. It has been designed for a broad range of students to become competent with composition, brushwork, and color application. It is recommended that students have some previous experience with college-level drawing courses. Projects will include still-life, landscape, portraiture and color field abstraction paintings. Students will explore specific techniques through group activities which will provide the basis for individual exploration. Thematic concepts will be discussed as primers to aide students toward loosely narrative work. Class time will be devoted to studio work, presentations, demonstrations, and critiques. In addition, students will be expected to work outside of the designated class time to complete all required assignments.
