This course uses a pre-determined size-the 12" square panel-and "systems" to create a series of paintings over the course of the semester. The premise is that by using prompts to start the painting, students can focus on painterly and formal qualities. Simultaneously, the weekly systems both challenge and investigate notions of content; the given guidelines explore ideas of identity and autobiography. The square format creates a consistent body of work that encourages the practice of painting in a series. Each week we will start a new painting. NOTE: A supply list will be distributed upon registration in this course. Acrylics, water based and odor free, non-toxic materials only.
