Summary

To train painting we must, first and foremost, train our gaze and our eyes to select, focus, caress, become inflamed. Learning to draw or paint means learning to see, to discover the physical porosity of the world, to engage with our own bodies, as well as the body of the matter we're working with.

Content

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Transpose the simple observation of the everyday objects in something that gives shape to the expressive forms through the drawing and painting
  • Explore the potentiality of the pictorial elements like color, surface, support, gesture etc. to take part in the building of the pictorial language.
  • Create imaginary through an intense dialogue with the images ( found and new images), but also with their possibility to realte to each other creating a possible narrative.
  • Explore personal creativity through giving shape to the proper imagination or inspiration
  • Establish a profound dialogue with the experience of an existing art work through the practice of the painting.

Assessment methods

Oral exam assessed on the following:

Each student will prepare a pdf including all the images of the works done during the course. Beside the images each student is invited to present a written reflection on the practice she/he had developed during these months and at the same time write something in relation with the artists that will be presented during the course.
