Students will gain experience in the fundamentals of painting, including composition, color, material choices and technical considerations. We will explore a range of painting surfaces: paper, canvas, board and wall; sizes: miniature to monumental; and paints including water and oil-based. Assignments will include color compositions, landscape, self-portrait and figure painting. We will also explore conceptual painting and work inspired by street art and graffiti.
The objectives of this class are to introduce students to the fundamentals of painting through hands-on work and exposure to a number of painting media, materials and approaches.
Students are expected to save all work created during the semester (a.k.a. the portfolio) and present the complete portfolio to the instructor during the last class of the semester. Evaluations will be contingent upon attendance, timely completion of all in-class and homework assignments, sketchbook and classroom participation. More than two unexcused absences might result in a “No-Eval”.
Students who miss a class are expected to find out what they missed from a classmate and make up the work in a timely manner. I do not provide critique and/or make-up sessions for missed class via email or during office hours.
Students are expected to be set up and be ready to work when class starts. You might have to arrive a few minutes early to set up. Students are expected to clean up after themselves before the end of class.
