This course will review fundamental painting approaches and introduce further experimentation and development of formal, technical, and conceptual aspects of painting. We will explore both current and historical painting practices, and investigate the concepts of observation, representation, abstraction, and conceptual thought as sources for our work. Discussion regarding scale, supports, surface preparation, color, and the manipulation of paint as materials and their impact on content and expression will be explored. Students will be encouraged to work from self direction and self motivation, and will begin to develop a personal language of content and expression.
