ART 130 Introductory Painting
4 hours; 3 credits
The course is an introduction to the fundamentals of painting a picture. Students are first familiarized with materials, equipment, and studio maintenance. Basic pictorial concepts such as color, composition, perspective, space, and the picture plane are introduced. Studio classes are tutorial by nature and are supplemented by group critiques, outside assignments, museum visits, written papers, and student presentations. Students choose from a wide variety of unusual still lifes. They allow the student to return to his/her picture repeatedly over several weeks and outside of class time. Prolonged work allows the imagination to generate new possibilities from the initial attempt as the student is made to see as an artist does. (arts & com.)
