Exploring painting is an online unit offered by Open Universities Australia in association with RMIT University. In essence, it teaches how the skill of painting becomes a form of self-expression across various different applications. Key themes include analysis, visual perception and intuitive sensibility.
To begin with, the unit investigates colour, what it represents, and its myriad hidden emotional complexities. Following this, still life is considered, before the unit embarks into more abstract, metaphorical territory by examining collage.
Ultimately, Exploring Painting provides its students with a theoretical understanding of the form’s many different applications. These insights can then be taken forward to help students develop their own artistic projects.
There are no prerequisites for this unit; anyone can apply.
