ART 369 - Mural Painting


This course will consider the historical and contemporary uses of mural painting ranging from Pompeiian frescoes to modern and contemporary social activist murals, graffiti and commercial applications (film, theater, etc.). A combination of Art History/Theory/Studio course, students will be required to research, develop and design projects, and create scale models of their designs in addition to class readings, discussions and slide lectures on the topic. ART 130 - Drawing I  is recommended as an introduction to the studio courses in the department and ART 149 - Introduction to Visual Culture  is recommended as an introduction to the art history courses. Some are required prerequisites to other art courses. Although not strictly required, it is recommended that students complete either ART 160  or   before registering for advanced courses in Art History (i.e.  , ART 265 , and selected topic courses). Alternate years. (4 Credits)
