This is a hands-on course that goes beyond mere skill building. Its purpose is to introduce various methodologies and representational strategies that have become prevalent in contemporary painting. Students will explore both abstract and representational modes of painting but assignments will allow a broad field of freedom of both interpretation and choice, while encouraging experimentation. The course encourages students to define their own voice and identify their aesthetic concerns through class critiques.

Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Ultramarine Blue, Napthol Crimson, Paynes Gray.
Paynes Gray is a black that contains blue, so get a small tube of Black too (either Mars or Ivory) in case you need a flatter, purer black.
Some useful extra options: Phthalo Green, Cadmium Red medium, Cerulean Blue, Alizarin Crimson, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre, Manganese Blue can be hard to mix from primaries so you may think of picking up in tube form or smaller jars.
Any other colours that appeal to you or you wish to experiment with.
