The skills and knowledge gained in ARST439 will serve as the foundation upon which students will be challenged to become technically proficient while developing a personal direction with the medium. The conceptual problems addressed allow painters of any formal, conceptual, or stylistic focus to solve them successfully without compromising either their personal visions or methods. This class requires students to become fluent with the medium and make aesthetic choices that can best convey their ideas. Lectures and class discussions provide an exploration of historical and contemporary issues. Individual and group critiques as well as museum and gallery trips will complement class work.

Interpretation - Students will become fluent in the critical reading/decoding of visual images, and translate that understanding into text and oral presentations.
Designing, Creating and Realizing - Students will conceive, create and complete original works of art that successfully convey their ideas and interests to an audience.
