Welcome to Art 340, Intermediate Painting.  This semester we are going to investigate contemporary painting practices and theory. We are also going to dive into the concepts of digital identity and scholarship and how they apply to us as makers.

We will explore direct and indirect methods of painting, experimental techniques and employ various painting media. We will strengthen our understanding of the elements and principles of design and ability to articulate ideas and receive thoughtful, constructive feedback. We will also discover and develop strategies for investigating specific subject matter through a series of paintings. Finally, we will learn to develop and maintain a digital presence through the creation of a domain and WordPress site.
