Painting

Offered to students who wish to develop their skill in painting and expand their means of self-expression through this medium. The course covers the techniques of watercolor, tempera, acrylic, and pastels. Encaustic painting may be included, time permitting. Subjects range from realistic still life and landscapes to abstracts, portraits, and imaginary subjects of the students’ own choosing. (A reasonable ability in drawing is helpful in this course.) Students will participate in group critiques and self-assessment, write research papers, engage in reflective writing, and read associated articles. Expect roughly one to two hours of homework per week. Students will be assessed through a written final exam and a portfolio review.

Students will participate in group critiques and self-assessment, write research papers, engage in reflective writing, and read associated articles. Expect roughly two hours of homework per week. Students will be assessed through a written final exam and a portfolio review.
