ARTS 450

Advanced Painting

This course promotes the exploration of personal artistic motivations and independent relationships to processes and materials. Students are encouraged to work from the figure, pushing issues of scale and experimentation with materials for 4 - 5 weeks of the semester. Additionally, students expand upon their understandings of process, media, and conceptual issues, generating an independent, advanced series of work. Students also examine and interrogate contemporary artistic issues and trends in written and oral forms of communication. This course takes place in tandem with ARTS 350, advanced students share work days and may share critiques with intermediate students.

Prerequisites: ARTS 101, 201, 251, and 350.
