ART 103 - Painting 1

3 credits

An introduction to painting from direct observation. Students learn basic painting techniques and color theory through weekly assignments. In-class projects build skills through a sequence of monochrome, limited palette, and full palette studies from direct observation. Historical and contemporary examples are introduced while painting constructed still-lives and self portraits. Final projects place emphasis on communicating a personal statement though both form and content.


Notes: ART 101 - Drawing 1  or prior experience with drawing from observation is highly recommended.
