PAINTING

Painting: Introduction I (PNTG101-36)

Students develop an understanding of the basic elements of painting such as shape, space and composition as well as how to develop a full colour palette in this introductory level course. There is also a focus on the material qualities of paint including mixing and application to surfaces. Students are encouraged to develop their own language and approach to painting as they learn basic techniques. Classes include hands-on demonstrations, the use of still life, found imagery, live models and photographs. Introductory painting courses usually focus on the use of acrylic paint because of its quick-drying capabilities.

Painting: Mapping, Geography & Place (PNTG265-36)

This course will use ideas of mapping, geography and a sense of place as a point of departure for developing a painting, or series of paintings. Students will use these ideas on both a literal and an abstract level. For example, students may map actual places, but also use the language of mapmaking as a source for abstract design in their compositions. Discussions surrounding contemporary artists who explore these themes will be included and students will be challenged to find their own language to create a personal narrative around geography and place. Painting experience recommended.

Watermedia Painting (PNTG266-36)

This course introduces students to the many ways watercolours and gouache (an opaque water-based paint) can be used in painting. Basics such as brush handling, creating washes, colour mixing and layering will be covered. Projects also include working on coloured and black paper as well as using mixed media such as coloured pencils, pastels and collage. The focus is on developing a sense of play and experimentation; students will experience delight and wonder at the versatility and surprising results of watermedia and quickly gain confidence through a series of fun and innovative assignments. Course also includes slide presentations to give students a broad overview of how contemporary artists are using watermedia in their art today. The course is suitable for people without any painting experience as well as those who are interested in developing their skills with watermedia.
