Painting: Constructing Narratives

Course No. PTG 235-335-435  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Daniel Tranberg
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Painting: Painting History: 1828-Present

Every painting implies a narrative, whether it is a story being told through the images or the story of how the painting itself was made. This class is focused on what constitutes a narrative and the creation of content and strategies in painting. Students will consider implied, explicit, rhizomatic and linear narratives. Through studio practice, lecture and discussion students will engage in producing visual and conceptual narratives within their work. Through investing narrative students will move beyond the fundamentals of Painting and focus on the development of a personal practice as framed by contemporary standards. Students will be expected to do research and generate a project reflecting their personal interests. By the end of the semester students will have identified a subject and created a group of works focused on this subject. Further students will be asked to work toward an artist statement to accompany their work. This course is open to all non-Painting major students as an elective with the prerequisite of Intro to Painting or with the permission of the faculty. Required for Junior Painting Majors.
