  • Overview

    This is an introductory course in painting techniques - acrylics, watercolor, pastels, collage and mixed media. Classes are held in the studio. Some on-site visits are organized to receive stimulus from the unique Italian sense of color, as exemplified in their vast offering of works of the great masters. The aims are to develop skills in the variety of media offered and to increase color harmony perception. The course has an individual painting project, a research paper and students will participate in a public exhibition at the end of the semester.
