ARTT 125. Painting II: Color and Structure

For this course, students will choose a path of study in painting with a special focus on color. The initial challenge of the course will be to identify a visually rich subject of study that each student finds compelling. As the independent projects build through dialogue with peers and new iterations, different approaches to using and thinking about color will be introduced. Students will be asked to share studio research, collected in a sketchbook/journal. This collection will evolve in meaning and direction as the projects develop. We will explore ways color can be used to create light, space, structure as well as emotional and symbolic meaning in painting. Feedback will be given in the form of individual and group critiques to address the formal, technical and conceptual properties of color usage and other elements of the work.
