ART 3540 - Intermediate Painting


Goals: To build upon knowledge and experience gained in ART 1540 Beginning 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 1540 or permission of instructor.
