Designed to be taken independently or in conjunction with our Renaissance Drawing and Painting Techniques and Beyond course, this class is formatted to teach art students how to paint simply and quickly using traditional methods. While students in Renaissance Drawing and Painting Techniques learn the importance of finish, this class is designed to emphasize the significance of an intelligent and efficient start based on working methods and aesthetic principles established during the 15th through 19th centuries.
Initially, systematic painting methods are stressed to build confidence and speed of execution. Concepts of shape, value, color, edge relationships and brush manipulation are approached with concise clarity to help increase the accuracy of intuitive decision-making and to facilitate assured painting. During each painting session the importance of intent is emphasized to help students focus on essentials and use limits of time to their best advantage. The class includes an informed overview of materials, techniques, and ways to increase artistic seeing and thought processes.
