Advanced Painting

Advanced Painting familiarizes the student with a wide range of concepts, ideas, media and alternative approaches to painting being utilized by contemporary artists. This course explores the boundaries of painting through in-class work and out-of-class investigations. Through lectures, creative projects, discussions, and critiques, students broaden their art-making practice in conjunction with their conceptual and personal artistic development. As much as possible, I try to invite visiting artists for class critiques.
