Painting: Media and Methods FFP205

Launceston

Introduction

Introduces a range of the material processes available to painting. Water colour, acrylic and oil based media are explored along with their appropriate supports such as canvas and specialist papers. Each process is considered within the context of its traditional and contemporary use. Thus conceptual approaches are always linked to subject matter and ideas about representation. Students are challenged to develop a personal position on these issues which can be observed in their work.
