In this course we will demystify the art of seeing. Learning to paint is a means towards learning to see. Learning to see, not what you “think” you see, but what you actually see, is the key that can unlock the door to your inner vision. Once you can access visual phenomenon through painting you will find out how much there is to see and how beautiful things really are.

This course will explore our perceptual world in terms of color by introducing the student to basic color theory, paint handling, color mixing, design, and reproduction techniques via challenging visual exercises and stimulating personal projects. The first part of the course will introduce students to drawing, a precursor to painting, using live models as our subject matter, and the second half of the course will concentrate on painting. Toward the end of the course, students will be expected to develop painting ideas of their own combining their own aesthetic with processes and visual information learned in this course.

(Students who have taken a previous LHSP 140 course and wish to continue with advanced painting projects, may take this course again, with instructor permission).

Note: This course will require the purchase of various art materials related to acrylic painting and drawing. A specific list of materials will be sent via email prior to the first class. There is also a lab fee of $75, which will cover the hiring of the model(s). This is a rigorous course with extensive painting assignments outside of class. There will also be required field trips to museums which will be scheduled separately. No prior experience required.

Should there be the need for a waitlist, Lloyd Hall Scholars Program members will be given preference; class permission is granted by the instructor. No class permissions/overrides will be issued for courses without the consent of the course instructor. S/he has final authority on whether or not to issue overrides. Once a class permission is given, students will have 48 hours to use the class permission before it expires. It is critical that students attend classes from the beginning of the term.
