CFA 1091. Fine Art Fundamentals II: Painting. 3 Credits.

First-year painting focuses on materials, techniques, and historical precedents as means to begin to develop your personal imagery, content, and techniques. Classes devoted to a rigorous, hands-on learning process provide a context for the expression and development of individual goals, from realism to abstraction to animation. Working on several paintings during the semester, students will experiment with both traditional and new methods. Discussions on the history of painting, along with faculty-moderated critiques begin to address the rich context in which the contemporary painter participates. Fundamentals of Fine Art: Painting is a prerequisite for taking intermediate and advanced painting courses.
