OverviewThis course builds on the basic elements of painting introduced in the foundation level course. The technical study of oil painting continues with a focus upon the nude human form through the use of figure models. Students will be guided through the challenges of color, composition, value and pictorial dynamics. This progressive building up of skills is balanced by the encouragement of the emerging personal artistic expression of each student. Group and individual critiques serve to analyze this personal expression as much as to monitor the mastering of the technical skills of painting. Visits to exhibits in Florence of contemporary painting will form part of the course.
