The Painting course is intended to build upon the Foundation of Visual Arts course through the use and development of color, drawing, and compositional skills via painting mediums.  Students learn color theory and apply those theories within the context of various painting assignments.  In addition, they will be introduced to a variety of painting techniques and mediums.  Students learn to paint from life as well as from source materials for reference, and will have the opportunity to experiment with historical, contemporary and personal themes in art.  Sketchbook assignments will supplement in-class activities.
