Landscape to Abstract Painting

ART 6518 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Offers students an opportunity to move from representational landscape to abstraction and to use the painting medium of their choice to explore the connections between representational landscape images and abstract and nonrepresentational expressions. Provides a variety of 2D materials from charcoal to mixable oils. Taking advantage of the seasonal New England weather, students begin with plein air landscapes. At the end of each class, students are encouraged to critique their work and discuss adaptations to their K–12 classroom art curriculum. One goal of the course is that, when the course ends, students have a body of work comprised of landscape and abstract paintings.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
