CEPN 210 SU01: Contemporary Painting

Jun 19
Aug 7

This unique painting course combines studio time with seminar-style discussion to expand students' understanding of and relationship with contemporary painting. Students will further develop their painting skills through exercises and projects that question and experiment with traditional painting approaches and techniques. Alongside active studio work, students will begin to locate their own practice within broader themes by examining diverse contemporary painters and exploring current painting discourses.
