ARST 124 - Intro to Painting: Imagined Worlds

FC ARHU
4 credits
This course introduces students to oil paint by way of observing and imagining space and place. Students will study the history of landscape painting, and work through contemporary re-imaginings of land use interpretation and critique, to expand on and challenge traditional notions of “landscape.” Technically, the class will introduce methods for complex color mixing, a range of oil painting techniques, and how to work on traditional surfaces. Painting projects will focus on the creation of speculative landscapes, abstracted spaces, surreal interpretations, and dystopias/utopias, building on and challenging the history of landscape painting. Field trip(s) required.

This course is appropriate for new students.
