This course introduces students to basic skills, techniques and processes of painting with water based paints and mediums. Studio projects focus on the observation and handling of tonal values, and colour systems and their application in the composition of paintings. Fundamental principles and concepts of representational and abstract painting are introduced and students are encouraged to learn from historical and contemporary examples. The projects involve working from the observation, landscape, still life, and imagination, with the focus on the colour and physical qualities of paint. Studio theory is delivered as a series of lectures.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- utilise skills relevant to Painting in response to Workshop projects;
- explore materials used in Painting projects;
- recognise relationships between concept and processes in painting; and
- identify historical and theoretical contexts relevant to Painting workshop projects.
