CFA 4210. Advanced Painting Studio. 3 Credits.
In this advanced painting studio students will begin a cohesive body of work or fully develop one in progress. They will fine-tune image making skills on work with live models, projected images, or special projects, with emphasis on professional execution. History suggests that Van Eyck made the first oil painting medium, Rubens, Vermeer, and others helped to perfect it. Using the secret formulas and techniques of the Masters, students will learn how to use Maroger medium also known as miracle medium. Students will also explore imprimatura, underpainting and glazing, mixing and drying properties, opacities and characteristics of colors and media, and the production of effects with different brushes and painting tools. Finally, they will master these techniques and adapt them to their vision in forming expressive strategies in oil or acrylics.
