This course is an introduction to the elementary concepts and techniques of painting. These include colour theory, pictorial plane, surface and imagery inter-relationships, surface preparation, palette works and others. It will focus on three primary areas: material applied, techniques of application and variety of surfaces. The course projects enhance observation skills and provide an opportunity to acquire confidence in the medium through freedom of experimentation with diverse media. Students are expected to gain a basic understanding of formal pictorial elements as well as conceptual aspects of painting.
