Oil Painting: Color & Movement

Painting in Oil: Exploring Color and Movement
In this class students will learn oil painting histories and techniques in order to develop skills and aesthetic sensibilities in two dimensions. Through assignments that increase the understanding of the mechanics and composition of color, we will expand our notion of picturing to include sciences, narratives, and the natural world. Towards the end of the semester we will use our paintings to create a time-lapse video animation based on the oil painting process itself. In this way students will explore how to make a static image come to life with change and motion. Sources and examples by visual artists from the past and present will direct students toward making original contemporary art.
