Water-Based Painting—On-Campus (Ages 14-18)

You will be introduced to traditional and non-traditional materials and methods used in water-based painting.  We will be working from a variety of subjects and painting from observation and the imagination using ink, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media.  You will build skills in techniques including color, tone, volume, contrast, and temperature.

Visits to our museum, the Art Institute of Chicago provide inspiration!  

Students should have previous drawing experience, but no painting experience is necessary. Note: Figure Drawing, Figure Painting, Painting, and Drawing courses may use nude models hired by SAIC.  Other classes may use them to a lesser degree.

Class will not meet on November 26, 2022.
