Develop a strong foundation in painting. In this course, students have the opportunity to explore basic painting techniques while developing visual awareness and artistic self-expression. Principles in two-dimensional art, choice and use of materials (tempera, gouache, acrylic), sound techniques in painting, mixing, and color combination will be studied through a variety of subject matter. Color perception, artistic skill, style, and originality will be enhanced through the creative process in a supportive and stimulating atmosphere.
