ART 10700 Painting I

(3 cr.) Lecture-Lab: 0-4
Offered: F
This course will stress the process of painting as an imitation of nature through eye-hand coordination. Paintings are generated from photographs and still lifes (observed objects) as subject matter. Emphasis is on the exploration of techniques with a concern for accurate proportion, simple positive-negative/figure-ground relationships, and color dynamics. Technical realism is introduced after an initial but solid understanding of color theory, compositions, and spatial relations has been developed. Media is limited to full-spectral wet oil materials.
