Painting I

Course Description:  Painting I is designed to introduce and create fluency in basic painting methods; to encourage, through studio activity, heightened observational awareness; and to create sensitivity to the physical properties of the medium and its visual implications.  The secondary goal of this course is to develop artistic courage and self-esteem through learned discipline, painterly trial and positive reinforcement for experimentation.
