Basic Painting Class Overview
The Basic Painting course is an introduction to the traditional techniques of oil painting for beginning students or students with no previous training in Fine Arts. The entry level painting class deals with the most fundamental principles and elements of still-life painting, with an emphasis on the perception and buildup of form, tone, and color on a two dimensional surface. Exercises are introduced to students in highly structured lessons, including the theory of color, supplemented by practical demonstrations. Reference to the exceptional works of art in the city of Florence will be investigated and Marist-LdM Undergraduate Catalog 74 analyzed as an integral part of the course.
