Course in Painting
Students will be introduced to the technical and theoretical aspects of painting in a variety of medium. Beginning level students will work from still-life, nude models and on-site in the city. Lessons will focus on use of color, value, and composition. Intermediate students will continue to build on the skills learned at the beginning level and will start developing their own personal visual language. Advanced students are expected to have mastered the technical aspects of painting and will begin to build a body of work that reflects a personal style and ideas.
Studio assignments will be augmented by discussions, critiques, illustrated lectures, museum visits and the analysis of historic and contemporary paintings.
Students in painting courses will need to purchase their own materials, including paper, canvas, paints, brushes and solvents. This will be discussed on the first day of class.
