Credit Hours: 3.0

Prerequisite(s): ART1300C with C or ART1500C with C
Corequisite(s): None

Introduces students to compositional, tonal and color relationships in painting the forms of the human face and figure. Life Painting exposes students to the associated vocabulary, historical context and practical applications of direct, observational painting from the live, nude model. This course introduces students to the creative process, concept development, and broadens and sensitizes the student to materials and techniques involved in the painting process. Life Painting requires substantial time toward the completion of class projects, both in and outside of scheduled class time. Life Painting aids in preparing students to apply for entry to upper-division programs through the development of a body of portfolio-quality figure and portrait paintings.
