ART 334 - Figure Painting


This studio art class focuses on representations of the human figure in contemporary painting. Students will learn how to paint the human figure by first drawing from the skeleton and models. Portrait painting as well as full figure painting will be taught. The class will situate figure painting as a studio practice within the context of art history and address problems of representation. Projects will focus on topics such as the psychological body, the political body and the abstracted body. Slide lectures, critiques and a gallery/museum visit will supplement studio work. Three two-hour periods per week. Prerequisite(s): ART 234  or permission of instructor. Alternate years; next offered fall 2007. Fall semester. (4 Credits)
