From Drawing to Painting (Early College Program)

School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Select Option

Highlights

This course is for students that have a background in drawing, but little to no painting experience. Drawings serve as the foundation for acquiring new painting skills and students are encouraged to develop their own ideas and goals with instructor guidance. Skills such as line, volume, space, materiality, form and function, and palette are explored through both drawing and painting. A variety of traditional and contemporary materials are used, and may include graphite, charcoal, pastels, water-based paints, mixed media, and/or collage. 

Trips to the Art Institute of Chicago and discussions of practicing artists will supplement the studio experience and encourage inspiration and development of concepts in student artworks. By the end of the course, students have greater knowledge of materials options and acquire the ability to transition from drawing to painting. 

This course is recommended for both beginners and those wanting to improve and develop their current abilities. This is a great prep course for Painting Studio. 

Important: 

  • Figure Drawing, Figure Painting, Painting, and Drawing courses may use nude models hired by the School. Other classes may use them to a lesser degree.
  • After enrolling for any children's classes, CourseHorse will reach out to you with additional paperwork which must be completed in order to stay enrolled in the classes.
