Intermediate Painting: Every Painter is a Thief

There's no way around it: you got your ideas from somewhere else. In this class we will explore the lineage of our ideas and be deliberate in their context, function, framing, and form. It matters where our ideas and studio practice come from, but the question is: what do we do with them now that they're ours? Students will develop the ability to create paintings and articulate ideas through comparing what is original, reproduced, and appropriated. Readings, films, and critiques will prepare each student to pursue studio practice and research. Prerequisite: Introduction to Painting
