Through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on use of the materials in a studio setting, this course will explore the development of painting and drawing materials and technologies in Western art. Students will create independent projects using materials and techniques from important stages of art history, such as Neolithic art, encaustic painting, manuscript illumination, silverpoint drawing, egg tempera painting and gilding, fresco, oil painting on rigid panels and flexible (canvas) supports, ink making and ink drawing, the development of paint pigments, watercolor painting, acrylic and other synthetic binders. Through projects, students will acquire basic skills, such as panel preparation for painting, how to make and use various painting mediums, brush selection and how to varnish paintings. Experimentation in the use of materials and techniques of the past in innovative ways will be emphasized. This course is geared toward intermediate and advanced students, who want to produce work in a fast-paced, independent studio setting.
