From the idea to the exhibition - approaches to the painted image.

The lecture gives an introduction to historical and contemporary objectives of painting and the related technical approaches. In the practical part of the course, the application of those techniques aims not only to enhance the painterly repertoire of the students, but also to reflect the possibilities of representation within the medium and their individual artistic practices.

The class follows a chronological structure, taking the steps that are crucial in the creation of a painting: the first idea, approaching it by sketches, selection of a picture medium and adequate technique, completion, its critical reflection and presentation. 

Important Note:

This class is part two of a course over two semesters. We will mainly discuss questions that arise after a painting is finished: Choosing a title, documenting paintings, creating a portfolio, writing about paintings and, finally, presenting them in solo or group exhibitions.

The course will be held on Tuesdays from 10:30 in the seminar room of the class for Painting & Animated Film, Ferstel Trakt 2nd Floor.
