Course Description

In this course students produce paintings through the application of a range of techniques and materials. As such, the results are expected to be varied and broad in nature.

Via a number of projects, students investigate the essential nature of Painting and consider it within a range of contexts - historical, contemporary, social and political. Painting is presented as not merely a material substance for personal expression, but also as a vehicle that implies how one thinks. Students are introduced to a range of methods and mediums associated with Painting. Emphasis is placed on the aquisition of fundamental skills and to developing understanding of personal research and observation.
