By learning advanced techniques, students will develop technical confidence in acrylic painting. This course will focus on the formal aspects of painting while allowing students to maintain their own unique styles and conceptual interests. We will learn advanced color mixing and color theory, practice alternative methods of glazing and layering through the use of polymer mediums, and manipulate paint with unconventional materials. Studio time will be supplemented by lectures on historical to contemporary trends in formal painting techniques.
