Fundamentals Of Painting
Mixing paints, color theory, forming composition. Each course builds on the previous one. Drawing and Painting Fundaments classes compliment each other and may be taken concurrently.
Students will be taught the basics of mixing and using paints, color theory, as well as forming a composition. We will create beautiful images that will serve as tools for informing future painting efforts inside or outside of class. We will paint from individual objects and still life arrangements. We will work with acrylics, or gouache as an alternate. Both of these dry faster than oils. If you already have oils or water colors you may use them instead. You must rinse any oil brushes at home, not in class.
