Using the painted fig­ure as a vehi­cle of insight and expres­sion, stu­dents explore how the fig­ure embod­ies a world­view, a crit­i­cal spirit, and a cul­tural dynamic. Stu­dents work with male and female mod­els, blend­ing pic­to­r­ial com­po­si­tion with obser­va­tional skills and uti­liz­ing the tech­ni­cal aspects of oil paint to build the struc­ture and vol­ume of the human form through line, shape, and color. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in the fall term of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
