Painting Process

This experimental class will explore contemporary and traditional approaches to painting through an intense focus on process and materials. Acrylic paint will be used as a drawing tool and to develop fully realized compositions. Oil paint will be used following the indirect method for glazing egg tempera and other surfaces of an underpainting. Color and composition will be studied through selected projects that include non-traditional tools and applications including pouring, squeegee, collage, stencils and paint additives for the creation of diverse surface textures.
Prerequisite: Painting I (ARTS 220)or permission of instructor.
