ART 208 - Introduction to Painting (3)


This course emphasizes painting as a process. Students will learn and practice the basics of color theory, color volume shading, layering, and creating textures using paint. Students will explore the medium's role in art history through the in-depth study of one artist and the artistic process through conception and execution of an individual creative work. Students will 1) practice working with color contrast and creating volume and depth through color volume shading; 2) understand techniques for working with acrylic paints and mediums; 3) understand the work of a significant 20th century artist by copying a work and researching the artist; and 4) use the artistic process to develop their own concept and color scheme and then execute their own creative work.
