ART 135 Painting I (3 credits)
This course will concentrate on becoming familiar and proficient with the basics of image making through painting, developing good studio practice, and introducing terminology and developing language so that constructive discussions and self analysis may take place. The subject is studio based, and will focus on working from life, meaning that we will work from your actual visual experience. Working from various motifs as appropriate, including the landscape, still life and the figure, students will research form and space using paint. This course may be taken as an independent study.
