ARTT 033A. Painting II: Color and Structure

This course is focused on subtractive color interaction as it pertains to painting. Students will be expected to build a color study 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. We will use gouache, colored paper and found objects throughout the semester to execute our projects. 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.
