Get a grounded foundation in painting for realistic paintings on canvas in this stimulating course. Some foundation art experience in painting & drawing is helpful for this course, but not essential. In the first few weeks, we will work on various drawing exercises: value, light, scale & volume, along with studies in negative space & proportion. Still, life preliminary exercises will be assigned by your instructor working in pencil or ink. About halfway through the course, we will move into the painting: color theory, color mixing, and application, along with bushing techniques & special effects used by the pros. We will also discuss & take inspiration from past & present artists. Final assignments & finish paintings based on students' own personal themes or subject matter, form photos or real-life matter. We will also explore a student’s personal expression within the discipline of your painting(s) and offer a final critique. This is a valuable class for students who are interested in a career in the visual arts.
