Independent Projects: Painting (CEPN 400)

Connect with creative peers, get back to the studio, and experience on-campus life in an Independent Project course. This class is suitable for students and emerging artists with previous experience in painting with water-based media wanting to develop their practice. Students should be comfortable working independently, using their initiative to explore or develop a personal project. You will be encouraged to cultivate your individual expression and visual language, with guidance from the instructor and generative feedback from group critiques. Easels, donkeys and some basic tools will be available, but students are responsible for purchasing any materials or tools necessary for their project. Limited storage is available for work-in-progress.
