Description: Students will gain experience in the fundamentals of painting, including color, composition and materials but perhaps the most important aim of the class is learning to see. We will explore a range of painting surfaces from paper to board, sketchbook and wall; sizes: miniature to monumental; and paints including acrylics, inks and oils. Possible assignments will include color mixing, still life, landscape, self-portrait and figure painting. We will also explore conceptual painting and work inspired by street art and graffiti. A final, multi-week painting project, proposed and completed individually by each student and a research project into the work of an assigned painter will be the culmination of the semester's work. A selection of assigned readings and documentary screenings will round out our inquiry.
