PNTG 431 Advanced Landscape Painting With a focus on the conceptual, perceptual and techni- cal evolution of the landscape image in the history of painting, this course continues to develop the skill base begun in landscape painting. While the course concen- trates on advanced issues specific to this genre, atten-


tion is also given to the role of technique and theory in the expression of the masters and contemporary practitioners. Prerequisite(s): PNTG 331.


PNTG 433 Advanced Mural Painting This course continues to develop the skill base begun in Mural Painting. The course addresses materials, tech- niques, surface treatment and archival issues relevant to both interior and exterior mural painting. The course emphasizes the aesthetic, technical and social issues at the junction of architecture and contemporary paint- ing. Studio practice is supplemented by lectures, films and on-site visits. Prerequisite(s): DRAW 101, DSGN 101.


PNTG 444 Visiting Artist in Painting This course offers undergraduate painting students one quarter of study with a visiting artist in the paint- ing department. The course is organized around the conceptual and technical specialties of the visiting artist and culminates with a collaborative class project. Through critiques, discussions and writing, the visiting artist guides students in assignments and projects, fos- tering an understanding of the connections between idea, media, technique, scale, process and content. Students also gain an understanding of the visiting artist’s own process of idea development and profes- sional practices. Prerequisite(s): PNTG 302.


Painting (Graduate)


DRAW 708 Graduate Drawing This independent studio course approaches drawing as a unique fine art medium, as well as a means for building momentum for works in other media. Students explore drawing both as a process through which ideas may be presented, and as a finished product with renewed relevance in contemporary art. The course encourages students to establish a working method in drawing unique to their respective studio practice.


PNTG 502 Graduate Painting Methods Studio This accelerated painting course covers fundamental considerations of painting as a form of expression. The course emphasizes both traditional and contemporary applications of paint primarily through a direct visual process to develop paintings based upon the optical effects of light upon form. Students will gain a strong foundation in the practices and materials associated with oil and water-based media. The development of a conceptual framework will also be addressed.


PNTG 503 Graduate Advanced Painting Allowing graduate students to develop their strengths pertaining to their own aesthetic and choices of materi- als, this open-studio course also enables them to work toward an advanced cohesive body of work. Students will have relevant reading and writing assignments and will be required to complete a finished artist’s statement.


PNTG 704 Formal Aspects of Painting This first-year graduate studio course explores painting as a formal visual language. Students create directed new works that examine their own formal choices: color, value, line, shape, surface quality, composition, and scale. The course is driven by group critiques, indi- vidual critiques, and reading and writing assignments.


PNTG 707 Painter’s Modes of Expression The brushwork and color used by an artist help convey the emotive and psychological atmosphere of the artist’s work. In this course, student projects focus on these concerns, and are discussed in individual and group critiques.


PNTG 728 Painting Studio I With coursework structured according to the goals and needs of each students, this studio course is designed to refine students’ personal direction and critical vocabulary. Both individual and group critiques sup- port the projects. Prerequisite(s): PNTG 704.


PNTG 738 Painting Studio II Using an individual program designed for each student based on previous coursework, this studio course is


designed to further refine students’ personal focus and critical vocabulary. Both individual and group critiques support the projects. Prerequisite(s): PNTG 728.


PNTG 741 Painting: Directed Project This course provides graduate painting students the opportunity to establish an individual work plan and criteria under the guidance of a faculty member within a standard course format. Students create a feasibility plan that outline the resources needed to meet objec- tives of their work plan. A student must have passed the faculty preliminary review in order to be eligible to take this course. The course is recommended for sequencing as an elective in the fourth quarter of the M.F.A. in preparation for the Review for Candidacy. Prerequisite(s): PNTG 738.


PNTG 749 Painting M.A. Final Project All M.A. painting students are required to create a personal, cohesive body of work and an extended artist statement. Students have the opportunity to combine historic and contemporary references with focused, self-directed expression, articulating ideas and con- textual theories through refined critical self-analysis.

An individual program is designed for each student based on previous coursework. Both individual and group critiques support the development of thesis exhibition and the quality of the work. Prerequisite(s): PNTG 738.


PNTG 760 Advanced Color Issues in Painting In this course, students focus on the development of a personal color language and employ principles of color theory as primary expressive agents.


PNTG 762 Life Painting This course focuses on the conceptual, perceptual and technical evolution of the human figure in the history of painting. While the course concentrates on advanced issues specific to this genre, attention is also given to the role of technique and theory in the expression of the masters and contemporary practitioners. Students explore complex figure groups, complex environments, and sophisticated use of scale. Models will be available for the entire quarter.


PNTG 764 Narrative Painting This course introduces the historically complex role of the painter as narrator, concentrating on the balance of subject matter with aesthetic form.
