Comments about Course - Painting 3: Your Own Exhibition - Online
The course aims to continue developing the quality of practical work and the use of a personal visual language; help students plan and complete a major programme of practical work; deepen understanding of twentieth century painting.
This course builds on the skills you will have acquired at Levels 1 and 2 and it will give you maximum scope to develop and express your own ideas. There is continuing emphasis on the importance of drawing as a means of discovery and you will be offered particular painting themes to explore, but, in discussion with your tutor, you will decide on most of the content of your programme yourself. In the theoretical element of the course you will study three important movements in twentieth century art.
- Drawing as a means of discovery
- Painting themes
- Theoretical studies in twentieth century art
- Illusion in paint and how different artists use paint
- A personal major project.
