Course Descriptions

ART282 :  Painting II

This is the second painting class of a three-course sequence. Course objectives are (1) to learn a higher mastery of the tools and materials of traditional and contemporary easel painting techniques; (2) to achieve a theoretical understanding of intermediate color theory, interaction and perception; and (3) to apply the above to the processes of painting. Critical thinking is developed through both individual and group critiques addressing the integration of form with content. Students explore diversified subject matter in both objective and non-objective idioms. Projects are designed to develop further painting techniques, employ mixed media, stimulate individual solutions, personal directions, and experimental approaches. Both individual and group criticisms, combined with discussions of painting ideology, expand the students' perceptions of themselves as artists within a historical and contemporary context. Sequential
