ART 106 - Basic Studio Painting

This course will provide students with introductory level painting knowledge and skills, emphasizing fine art approaches.  Painting will be explored through production, critique, history and aesthetics in order to achieve individual artistic goals.  Students will be provided with the fundamental technical, historical and conceptual information necessary to produce fine art paintings and develop a portfolio.  The elements and principles of design will be incorporated through the use of various painting materials and techniques.  Emphasis will be placed on the hands-on exploration of formal, technical and conceptual relationships.  Students will develop a sensitive response to subtleties in paintings as well as to the whole.  Critical thinking will be addressed with each project, allowing students to improve their ability to analyze visual works of art.
Through creative studio practice, students discover relationships relevant to their role as an artist and work to develop the following emphasized artistic traits:  perceptual openness, flexibility/adaptability, the courage to take a risk, the ability to analyze, and self-confidence.
