Painting Process

This class explores both contemporary and traditional approaches to painting through an intense focus on process and materials. Selected projects include acrylic paint used as a medium for wash drawing and in fully developed compositions. Assemblage and paint additives further the exploration of surface and texture. Oil paint is used following the indirect method for glazing egg tempera and other under-painting bases. Color and composition will be studied through projects that include non-traditional tools and applications including pouring, squeegee, collage, and stencils.
Prerequisite: Painting I (ARTS 220)or permission of instructor.
