ART 0907 6.8 Quarter Hours
Course Level Continuing Education
Description Offers students an opportunity to work in a variety of media, including pencil, charcoal, watercolor, acrylics, wax, and oils. Invites students to consider the interrelations of realism, abstraction, and nonrepresentational painting. Begins by focusing on a realistic painting and, through a variety of steps, demonstrates how to transform this work into an abstraction. From the abstract painting, students have an opportunity to take the next steps into nonrepresentational work. Encourages students to explore the connections of their own evolving work to the Massachusetts Department of Education Frameworks.
