Water-Based Painting

In this course students are introduced to traditional and non-traditional materials and methods used in water-based painting. Projects include painting from observation and the imagination, using current artist practices and historical examples. Working from a variety of subjects, students may use ink, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media within their works while building skills in color, tone, volume, contrast, and temperature. Visits to the Art Institute of Chicago provide inspiration and firsthand experience of artists using water-based media.. 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 the School. Other classes may use them to a lesser degree.

Students who have completed their sophomore year of high school have the option of enrolling for 1.0 college credit for this course by selecting the "for credit" option below.
