Advanced Painting I

Advanced, Small seminar—Fall

Class discussions, critiques and readings on art history and contemporary art will aid students who want to further develop their ideas in painting in developing a context for their work. We will be painting with acrylics (the commercial brands), and you will learn to make your own paint by using water-dispersed pigments and a variety of polymer emulsions with different properties. This will encourage experimentation with the painting media and aid painters in integrating the process of painting their ideas. There will be two required workshops: one in PhotoShop; one in photography. Students will produce drawings from their digital work as a preliminary step for their paintings. This course requires the student to work independently in the studio. Please bring a visual documentation of your recent painting to the interview. Completion of one college-level painting class is required.
