Painting: Representation as Metaphor (PNTG276-36)

This course is for people interested in representational or “realistic” painting, and who want to take their work to the next level and go beyond painting only what they see in front of them. The focus is on making personal and meaningful paintings based on analysis of images and subject matter. Students are introduced to contemporary artists who use representational imagery to depict a range of ideas and emotions. Course is organized by themes and will focus on the use of metaphor to express ideas. For example, a painting with architecture as subject, could represent political autocracy; a flower, the transience of life; a bowl of soup, the importance of the everyday and banal. Students are encouraged to explore images that are of particular interest to them as a way to develop their own artistic sensibility. Acrylic or oil can be used. Some painting experience is recommended.

Painting: Series Development (PNTG207-36)

In this 12-week course, students will focus on developing a unified series of paintings. Guided research assignments using photography, drawing and creative writing will lead to the cultivation of each student's own topic of choice. Series topics will include formal and conceptual investigations such as use of materials, composition, structure and the development of ideas. Course includes examples of contemporary and modern artists who work in thematic ways, along with assigned readings, weekly critiques and opportunities to share research processes. If you are an artist with a million ideas swirling around, or if you simply don't know where to begin, this course will help you to understand the connections in your life that can lead to the creation of a cohesive body of work. In addition to developing a series, students will learn how to write an artist statement and prepare a submission for an artist residency or gallery. Students can work in a painting media of their choice: acrylic, watercolour, gouache or oil. Some painting experience is recommended.

Watercolour: Art and Science (PNTG244-36)

Art and science have co-existed throughout history as demonstrated through botanical and zoological drawings; diagrams of the earth’s structure and solar systems; and medical illustrations. This course uses several branches of science including cell biology, botany, geology, astronomy, mathematics and human physiology as a point of departure for drawing and painting. Basic watercolour techniques will be covered, but the focus of the course is on responding to a scientific subject in an expressive and imaginative way.
