1 credit hour 

This class will focus on issues raised in painting, particularly portraits and self-portraits, translating what is known and seen into the formal vocabulary of paint. Sources will include direct observation of the subject and the imagination. Students will investigate form and content as well as materials and techniques. Students may choose to work with oil-based media with odorless solvents, or water-based media. Slide lectures and critiques will be included.
