Overview

To provide studio instruction in the core foundations of drawing, painting, design to develop the framework of a well-rounded portfolio and lay the groundwork for further education into broader forms of contemporary practice.

For each six week session, we will focus on building a strong foundation of theory and technical skills.

  • Develop a work ethic that reflects integrity, teamwork, dedication to professional growth, social responsibility, and the creative confidence to take risks.
  • Present and discuss artwork through critiques.
  • Develop a greater capacity to link critical thinking and visual analysis in the generation, development, and framing of an idea.
  • Translate creative thinking into other areas of academic study.

  • 37 or 150 ml Gamblin Oil Paint – Hansa Yellow, Napthol Red, Ultramarine Blue, Mixed White (Titanium and Zinc), and Burnt Sienna. We use a limited palette of primary colors with a tint and tone color. So if you cannot find Naptho Red, for example, make sure you find a red that is close to a primary red. The same goes for Hansa Yellow. Note on the paint brand. Find Gamblin artist-grade or any other artist-grade paint if possible. Do not spend money on student-grade or cheap paint. You will use more of the cheap paint and spend more money. Quality paint goes a long way.

  • Container or Jar for the Gamsol
  • 9x12 Grey Disposable Palette
