Water-Based Media Painting

Painting in Water Based Media – Exploring Design and Graphic Concepts
In this course we will explore painting using water-based media including watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and ink. Our focus will be on parallels and crossovers between worlds of fine art and applied design. We will discuss styles common to both art and design from the decorative arts of the Renaissance and Art Nouveau periods to rational geometries of the Bauhaus. Through projects, students will learn to reinvent the past to create contemporary painted images. We will augment water-based painting with digital tutorials in Photoshop and Illustrator to merge handmade and computer methodologies, and to exploit color, layers, and textures of design motifs in typography and popular imagery.
