Painting 2, our second-year painting course, is developed for students who have had some experience of drawing and painting and who have already been introduced to principles of pictorial construction, line, tone, space, colour, and materials.
Students who have completed the year-long course Painting 1, or who have attended several terms of day or evening courses at Drawing and Painting - L2 or their equivalent, are ideally placed to get the most from this course.
Painting 2 begins around a structure of directed projects with students following a prescribed curriculum of learning. This process continues through to the end of term 2, at the mid-year point. Gradually, students are encouraged to begin to research more independently and to explore broader notions of visual understanding and personal interpretation.
In the second half of the year, the structure of the course places
greater emphasis on following an independent path of research and on the identifying of a personal direction and philosophy.
Students develop the confidence to discuss and to present their work, to participate in class critiques and to initiate group debate.
We have also incorporated Art History sessions with Linda Yang, scheduled once a week over terms 2 & 4.
