In this course, students will work on developing a stronger sense of their own voices within the creative process. As painters gain proficiency, they often work on a series in order to explore an idea beyond a single attempt. This approach allows for a concentration that helps build a body of work. During this course, students will work on their own series of paintings, and they will be encouraged to keep a painting journal to help document their visual thoughts. Class time will be dedicated to slide lectures of art from ancient times to contemporary, individual and group critique, and actual painting. Students will be encouraged to visit galleries and museums so they can see paintings in person and deepen their knowledge of making and exhibiting artwork. The course will culminate in the completion of a body of work and a group exhibit portfolio.

Prior painting, drawing, or collage experience is expected.
