Development of technical and perceptual skills that are the foundation of visual expression. Beginning projects start with a simple introduction to the mechanics of paint handling: how to begin a painting, apply paint, and model form. Value, line, color, and abstraction.
1. Produce midterm and final painting portfolios of paintings that demonstrate competence with direct painting materials, construction processes, and techniques and show technical and conceptual growth. 2. Define painting and formal vocabulary terms and apply them to the creation and critical evaluation of artworks. Use formal analysis to support discussion of paintings meanings as objects, processes, and images in relation to the historical and contemporary issues of the medium. Be able to discuss the issues of representational, abstract, and non-objective artwork. 3. Understand and use the language of pictorial representation to create an illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. Verbally articulate how formal qualities support or detract from spatial illusionism and problem-solve and revise their own works based on identified formal problems and solutions. 4. Understand and manipulate the relativity of visual perception of hue, saturation, and value and their effects on composition and spatial perception. 5. Express ideas visually. Articulate goals for independent projects, and be able to organize formal, structural, and compositional choices in support of project goals. Evaluate the effectiveness of choices made during their process, and revise based on identified problems and solutions.
