This course suits a cross-section of experiences from complete beginners to those who are more experienced but would like to re-engage with first principles in Painting. We recommend that students have a rudimentary knowledge of drawing in order to obtain maximum benefit from the course. If you have already taken our online Drawing course, this is an ideal follow-on.

Course Description

This online course offers students the opportunity to explore the first principles of painting. The emphasis of the teaching is to look at painting as a means of articulating form and as a tool for expression and creative imagination. The course explores the idea of perception as the starting point for visual enquiry and includes working from objects and secondary sources. Weekly sessions will be devoted to contemplating a particular set of formal issues, with special attention placed on colour and composition. Students can work with oils or acrylic. The course concludes by addressing subjective colour and strategies for developing personal work. It is our aim that students leave the course with a set of criteria helping them to explore ways of representing perceived objects and supporting them in thinking about how they might use these methods of working in conjunction with their own ideas. These sessions will be practical and delivered by both online live teaching, demonstration films and written material. The support material is designed to help students think about further possibilities within the wider remit of painting that can be questioned in their own time.

The sessions have been designed to be worked on at home in a space no bigger than your table top. Students will have access an introductory film a week in advance of the live session to familiarise themselves with the ideas, practical set up and exercises we will be undertaking. Students will have access to our online platform (UCL Extend) where they will be able to find all the asynchronous teaching (videos), instructions for the session and link to the online live session.
