This course aims to familiarize students with two major aspects of composition as they appear in painting: colour and texture. The course will consist of a series of exercises projects and assignments, after the completion of which students will have acquired knowledge in the basic concepts and principles of art as they appear in painting. Students will deepen their understanding of the basic compositional aspects (elements of art like colour, line, shape, mass, space, and principles of art like balance, symmetry, movement, rhythm, emphasis, etc.) covered in previous courses, and become familiar with the key concepts of colour theory.
