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 address 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 long history of painting and how it leads up to 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 may be required to visit museums and galleries in the Bay Area.
