Painting in the 21st Century
Spring 2015 quarter
This is a one-quarter program focusing on the development of studio skills and methods in painting and on the history and future of painting in the visual arts. Students entering the program must have a solid background in representational drawing. Students will have the opportunity to develop technical skills in the use of acrylics and oils and to learn about the history of painting, with emphasis on how this medium was transformed in the last century and how it is continuing to evolve now. Students will address weekly studio projects in class designed to improve their understanding of color, composition, thematic research and studio methodology. Each student will create a series of paintings on an individual theme over the course of the quarter, accompanied by in-depth, theme-related research. This program is designed for students who have a strong work ethic and self-discipline and who are willing to work long hours in the studio on campus in company with their fellow students.
