Course Description

This course is for students who have achieved basic painting skills and want to further their abilities, interests and projects on the intermediate or advanced level. You will begin by sharing your previous work and goals, and will receive ongoing personalized feedback from the instructor. The class covers painting techniques, archival issues, color complexities, composition, meaning and subject matter. You will look at the work of professional painters and learn to think about your work in relation to these “mentors.” Group critiques will be conducted occasionally to increase dialogue and foster an artistic community, but the main focus is your personal journey in painting.

Level: Intermediate to Advanced. Instructor permission required.

Note: For this online course, access to a computer or other digital device is essential for attending lectures, demonstrations and critiques. Students who are taking courses in digital media must have access to a computer, and will be asked to purchase a student license to the Adobe Suite. Tufts is making these licenses available at a greatly reduced price. Adobe software is not only essential for your courses, but is essential to almost any design or illustration practice.
