ARTS 103 - Painting I

3 Credit Hours
This studio course introduces the materials and approaches to oil painting and the interpretation of form based on observation from life. Students learn how to modulate color using a double primary color wheel system, approximate color they observe and learn to build paintings in a succession of layers. Oil paint materials and their physical properties are explained and demonstrated. Students compose and work from individual still-lifes they compose. Assignments, both in and out of class, will apply 2D design, drawing and color theory to coursework.
