This intermediate/advanced water-based painting course will examine an intimate visual narrative. Content for this course will be centered on how human experience is remembered and transformed through self-reflexive, experiential learning that connects the artwork to both the personal and public spheres. Formal issues will include the use of color, paint handling, value, and composition. Slide lectures, readings, class discussions and critiques will enhance studio work time.
