Painting: Constructing Narratives
Course No. PTG 335 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Lane Cooper
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 students with the prerequisite of PTG 221 Intro to Painting or PTG 232 Painting Beyond Observation or with the permission of the instructor. Required for junior Painting Majors.
