Welcome to Painting! This semester we will further explore the application of watercolor, acrylic and oil paints, through a variety of techniques. We will look at still life, landscapes and portraits, and further understand color theory, blending, washes, and properties in and of each type of paint to explore abstraction and realism within the composition. You will be inspired through the exposure to various artists, on your peer level, college level, professional and famous artist level works. You are also required to continue your weekly sketchbook assignments, displaying both higher level execution and thinking. Weekly verbal critiques will continue, as well as the occasional short written critiques. Examining all of this, and more, will give you increased confidence in your work.... and hopefully truly begin to LOVE to paint!
