ART 116 Painting I

An introductory studio experience exploring techniques and problem solving through oil paint on paper and canvas, using color palettes ranging from the simple to the complex, and while working from direct observation. Emphasis is placed on technical understanding, accuracy in observation, and forming the illusion of light and space on a two-dimensional surface. Lectures, discussions of historical and contemporary work, and in-class group critiques are employed to guide students towards developing a sense of individual artistic direction, visual literacy, and personal critical judgment. ARTS PERSPECTIVE. Six in-class studio hours each week. Course Fee: $15, plus the cost of materials.
