Dialogues in Painting: Traditional Materials
This course examines the practical application of indirect painting techniques from historical and contemporary practice. Students will paint from the live model exploring an evolving process that ranges from the structure of the drawing to the tonal and chromatic structure. Emphasis in this course is on analytical seeing/interpreting of form. Students will learn an overview of traditional and contemporary approaches to oil painting through creating a mid-size figure painting. The course will address:Drawing: design and composition, idea of form and space, tonal structure, warm/cool relationships. In class discussions and active painting exercises, students are encouraged to investigate their personal voices through painting media and how to connect the narrative of their own work with the concepts studied in class.
