Painting - Contemporary Methods & Meanings

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Painting - Contemporary Methods & Meanings

Course Code: ARTS2123

Please note: This course is not suitable for beginners. Contemporary painting embraces a wide spectrum of thematic, formal and conceptual approaches while pushing the boundaries of the material practice. Instruction begins with the creation of a figure painting in a contemporary context, proceeds to a diptych juxtaposing form and content in the two panels, and concludes with the creation of a painting in which images are layered over each other to create complexity of meaning. You will draw on print and digital media, art history, and your own research and sketchbooks for source material. Brief visual presentations of relevant artists will provide an expanded notion of contemporary painting.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
