Introduction to Painting

What is a painting (if not just a rectangle with paint on it)? What makes a good painting (if not just technique)? This class introduces you to the questions and techniques of painting from multiple points of view. While designed for students with little or no experience in painting, this class prepares students for advanced painting classes and independently driven work. We will sharpen our awareness of the ways paintings suggest meaning through form, context, narrative, and its relationship to the viewer.
