Methods and Materials

Thursday, 2:30 – 5:30pm
Instructor: Milena Spasic


This hands-on class will introduce students to the technical developments in painting (and some drawing) from ancient to modern times. The emphasis of the class, however, will be on the use of contemporary materials. Topics covered will include:

 

° tools (brushes, knives, palettes, etc), 

° preparation processes for both canvas and wood panels, 

° sizes and grounds, 

° drying oils and mediums, 

° pigments, 

° solvents, 

° painting procedures and the care of finished paintings. 

 

Underpainting, glazing, using opaque and transparent pigments, are among the many hands-on procedures that may be covered or discussed, in addition to an overview of modern alkyd resins and acrylic paints. 

 

Maintaining a safe and healthy studio practice will also be discussed.  

 

Required of all certificate students and recommended for others.
