Process cannot be overemphasized. As Picasso once stated, “a finished painting is a dead painting.” This course will introduce various methods for developing one’s own intuitive responses, placing greater emphasis on spontaneity and visual sensation by using repetition, color, line and lyricism. Students are encouraged to experiment with unconventional materials; discovering how materials can function as a conduit to “freeing up” the work.
This course presents students with some basic visual ideas and technical information involved in the art of painting and drawing. Students will explore their potential as they handle the materials of acrylic paint, charcoal and watercolor.
