This course is an introduction to the artistic medium of painting. Using skills previously taught in Drawing, students will explore various skills in paint to strengthen their skills in color mixing and observational painting. Through still-life and portraiture, students will work and gain greater experience with color, observation, and mixed media in order to further explore their own sense of style and artistic voice. Students will be able to make informed and deliberate decisions about media, technique and composition. Students will leave this course with a strong foundation in critical observational painting skills. Our class is on Google Classroom! This is where all due dates will be posted and you will submit your portfolio link. Ask me for the code to join.
