This six-hour course is devoted to building your skills in observational painting from life. Working directly from models and still-life arrangements, emphasis will be placed on recording firsthand visual experience using a range of opaque and transparent paint media. Projects will focus on the problems of seeing and describing fully realized forms situated in space as revealed through set lighting. The techniques of representational painting developed in this course can be applied to the full-range of text-image storytelling forms studied across the Illustration program.

Open to: University undergraduate students, juniors & seniors only.
