ART 102 - Advanced Painting
There are no Art pre-requisites, but enrolling students should have some experience with painting-either directly or through art history courses.
Continuing study of painting methods in a variety of traditional and nontraditional materials and techniques. This course offers students the opportunity to develop their own ability and knowledge of painting techniques, and to focus upon a self-selected painting project. The course challenges students’ ability to develop a self-directed project that addresses both the conceptual and practical aspects of contemporary painting and emphasizes the development of personal issues in their work. Through homework assignments, in-class lectures and conferences with the instructor, students will gain a better understanding of the state of the contemporary art scene, which in turn will aid their own creative practice. Students will use this knowledge to engage in critique. Students are encouraged to keep current through readings and attending art lectures and exhibitions and will be required to visit museums and galleries in the Bay Area.
