CEPN 179: Working Space of the Canvas

Traditional, modern, and contemporary images use spatial cues to indicate spatial depth even with abstract or non-objective work. This course introduces students to guidelines and spatial concepts of painting. Many types of space have been used throughout the history of art: Gothic (geometry), Renaissance (perspective), Impressionist (combination), and early modern (flat). Students will experience the application of various spatial methods and refine personal affinities and style. We will explore the techniques through demonstrations, structured exercises, and practical assignments. Art history, painting analysis, group and individual work, in class critique, and other methods will be applied to guide students through concepts and application of space in painting.
