ARTS 5250 Figurative Painting

Through the uninterrupted history of painting, the human figure has been showcased time and time again, and still it remains relevant today as many painters breathe new life into figuration. Portraying a human body is a nuanced and often overwhelming task which is why it is a class in itself. This class focuses strictly on painting the human body using oil paint. All in class paintings will be done from observing a live nude model. Proportional accuracy is expected as well as sensitivity to light and color. The course will not only provide students with instruction on painting the figure, but - due to its fixed subject matter- it acts as a platform for a painter to experiment with the formal properties of painting. Prerequisite(s): ARTS 5200 
Credits: 3.0
