CSPT 201: Learning to Paint $675.00
This foundational course introduces the novice painter to the essential concepts and techniques of oil painting, emphasizing the careful observation of subjects ranging from still life to self portrait and the figure. Class sessions explore the varied uses of paint as a material and its ability to render form and space through descriptive, expressive and symbolic means. Topics covered include basic technical control of materials and tools, methods of paint application, color mixing, and the preparation of the painting surface (paper, hardboard and canvas). Slide lectures convey the medium’s nearly limitless expressive potential through a variety of historical and contemporary examples.
