This online course features the following types of interaction:

  • Live meetings
  • Live critiques

Designed for students who have some painting experience and wish to develop their work. Participants consider content, composition/format, color, surface, materials, and craft while exploring aspects of painting that interest them the most (e.g., experimentation with materials, conceptual and technical approaches, observational work). Individual attention and group discussions of student work and contemporary and historical painting practices enhance studio work. Assignments are tailored for those who want more structure or direction.
