ART 103 - Painting 1
3 humanities credits
An introduction to the foundations of drawing. Working from direct observation, students learn to mix and blend colors, and to use value and tone to create volume and depth. Aspects of color theory are also explored. Lectures and critiques emphasize composition and technique, as well as the use of paint as a medium of self-expression and communication. Students are shown historical examples to develop an appreciation and understanding of painting as an expressive art form.
Notes: No previous art experience is necessary.
