Course Description

Painting II
This course is the second of a three-course sequence where the study of visual language is understood through the manipulation of tools and materials in the painting medium. The objectives of the course are (1) to learn a higher mastery of the tools and materials of traditional easel painting; (2) to achieve a theoretical understanding of basic 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 are encouraged to begin and sustain the process of self-examination by dealing with diversified subject matter in both objective and non-objective idioms. 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.
