PNTG 237 Representational Painting

College of Art, Media & Design

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

A studio course addressing the traditional and contemporary concepts and approaches to representational images. Emphasis is placed on the relation between content and form. Exploration in color, space, texture, shape, composition, and style are evaluated in the context of intention, aspects of recognition, and precedent. Paintings are generated out of direct observation of nature and human models as well as from the student’s own resources. Projects may focus on contemporary prototypes (paintings since 1945), specific domains such as American Portraiture, or paradigms from the entire lineage of East/West traditions of representational art.
