ART 5740 - Advanced Painting



Goals: To building upon knowledge and experience gained in ART 3540 Intermediate Painting.  The aesthetic elements of line, color, texture, shape, tension, etc. on a two-dimensional surface are developed.  To continue to understand that painting is a process and discipline linked to art historical discourse. 

Content: Oil paints will be the central medium of the class.  The course is structured and importance is placed on the formal elements of design: color, surface, composition, and space.  The emphasis is on learning to see objectively, be it from still-life set ups, landscape, or no objective studies.  The artistic and art historical concerns and choices are stressed.  Critiques are an important part of the class. 

Taught: Annually, spring term

Prerequisite: ART 3540 or permission of instructor.
