Painting One Beginning

Painting ONE Beginning

Course Number(s): V401211
Length: 1 Semester (2 Credits)
Prerequisites: Drawing ONE
Grade: 9-12

This course is designed to build on the drawing and compositional skills learned in Beginning Drawing by familiarizing students with color theory and painting technique. Students will be exposed to color schemes and learn to mix tints, shades, and tones to produce infinite colors. Painting medium used in this course will be tempera combined with acrylic medium. Painting terminology and a sampling of style from Art History will be covered in this course. Developing the technical skills to manipulate paint on a surface is the main focus of this course, but students will find that creative thinking and problem solving are a large part of this process. Determination and focus are the keys to success in this class.
