Form and Process: Investigations in Painting (PAI2107.01)

J Stoner Blackwell

This course introduces a variety of materials, techniques and approaches to painting with oils. Emphasis is placed on developing and understanding of color, form and space as well as individual research and conceptual concerns. The daily experience of seeing, along with the history of art, provides a base from which investigations are made. Formal, poetic, and social implications within paintings both from class and from art history are examined and discussed. Students complete work weekly. There are regular group critiques, and individual reviews, reading assignments and lectures by visiting artists. A high degree of motivation is expected.

Developing and maintaining a rigorous studio practice through regular assignments and independent work
Augmenting problem-solving and problem-finding skills
Investigating complicated ideas through open-ended conversation
