Schedule: TueThu 11:00a-1:15p

Fall 2021

This course is orga­nized around a rig­or­ously struc­tured sched­ule of paint­ing (in class and out), group cri­tiques, and dis­cus­sion of exem­plary works. Cre­ative pro­duc­tion is inte­grated with research into the world of con­tem­po­rary art. Stu­dents explore how their own paint­ing prac­tices relate to con­tem­po­rary paint­ing prac­tices, and how to con­duct research about art that is not yet part of the canon. They research and dis­cuss major 20th and 21st cen­tury art move­ments and artists who work in var­i­ous gen­res. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in both the fall and win­ter terms of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
