    Do you enjoy painting but don’t know what to paint? Source material is everywhere, but knowing how to uncover it and turn a spark of an idea into meaningful content can seem like a mystery. By merging conceptual experimentation with painting techniques like washes, layering, brushstroke variation, and color mixing, students will develop both the methods necessary to discover ideas as well as the skills necessary to execute them. For students who have taken this course before, please join us again! New and compelling exercises will challenge all levels of experience.
