Painting classes at Otterbein provide you with basic knowledge of the tools, materials, and techniques used in various painting media.

Classes build upon the foundations gained in 2-D Design and Drawing. The course emphasis is upon fundamental principles of visual organization and composition in painting, vitality and personal expressiveness, and upon disciplined, committed interaction between the artist and the work in process. A series of assigned painting projects along with individually selected painting problems help you develop painting skills. Instructors will work with you one-on-one, as well as in group critiques.

Additional components of painting classes include keeping a sketchbook, writing an artist's statement, viewing videos about artists, and studying slides of art historical examples. Painting classes are augmented by field trips, museum visits, exhibitions and talks by visiting artists. Recently, students have benefited from visits by international artists-in-residence.
