ARTZ 222v - Painting Studio: Portrait

Credit(s): 3

This course is designed for both beginning and more advanced students to develop the skills necessary to complete an oil portrait of a live model. Progressing from the large and less complicated structures of the human head, neck, and torso to the finer and more complex structures, the student will learn the significant topographical anatomy and employ the concepts of composition, design, perspective, color, light and shadow, character and narrative to establish a “likeness.” Each student will be encouraged to develop his or her own style. This course may be repeated for a total of nine credits. Students receiving financial aid or veteran’s benefits should check with the Financial Aid Office before repeating this course. (All Semesters)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Assemble materials needed to produce oil paintings and be fully aware of the health hazards associated with the medium.
  • Explain color, texture, composition, and other components of creating a painting.
  • Discuss their understanding of the arts, particularly in recognizing the value of the arts as a basic form of communicating the human condition.
