ART 130 Introductory Painting(RNL)

4 hours. An introduction to the fundamentals of painting. The course introduces essential materials and techniques, formal properties - such as color, composition, mark, and drawing - and key historical and contemporary ideas within the medium. Through weekly observational work and individual feedback, students improve representational and technical skills while building an understanding of the role of regular practice in an artist’s development. Group discussion and critique, presentations, field trips and written assignments encourage a link between the student’s work and the broader context of the discipline. Instruction is tailored to each student’s level of accomplishment.
