Class Details

This course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of oil painting. A significant portion of class time will be devoted to learning some of the basics of painting, such as the manipulation of color, value, surface, and texture, as well as to exploring the properties of several mediums (what the paint is mixed with to allow for application and drying). This course is focused on giving students access to a range of techniques that they can explore during the semester. We will also spend time looking at each other’s work and giving feedback and suggestions as well as studying the work of established artists. Evaluation will be based on evidence of each student’s progress, as shown by assignments and long-term projects; attendance and participation in class discussions.
