Studio Visit : Painting I with Isaac Payne

Students working hard in Isaac Payne's Spring 2014 Painting I class.

Korky Yang completes her self-portrait as Gustave Courbet in Isaac Payne's Spring 2014 Painting I class.

Painting I investigates a number of introductory painting methods, materials and concepts. Drawing I (Art 131) and Design I (Art 121) are strongly recommended before registering for Painting I–students will get the most out of the class if they have this solid foundation to build on. If you have questions about the the Painting program at CPCC, please contact painting instructor Isaac Payne at Isaac.Payne@cpcc.edu

(but we’d love to have you on board by the end of October!!)

Do you want to explore the art, food, landscape and culture of Italy? This program takes students to Florence and Rome, with other cities visited on day trips.  Participants are able to see some of the most renowned works of art in their original settings, explore the architecture and time period of their creation and explore their own creativity through drawing and painting.

Roundtrip Airfare

  • Accommodations

  • CPCC registration (cost of painting materials included)

 Course:   Students will receive 3- 6 credits

Art 114 and/or Art 115: This program will give the student the opportunity to see works of art in person as we discuss them.  There are many works of art that should be viewed in their original setting, such as a church or a private home, which cannot be seen in a book.  This adds to the understanding of the works of art as well as the art period during which they were created. There will be pre-departure meetings.

Art 240, 241, 288: The studio portion of this study abroad program will immerse students in the rich tradition of drawing and painting first hand, with instructor demos on-site, museum visits, impromptu sketching, and plein air painting.  Most sketching sessions will be held in the morning, but students are encouraged to carry a sketchbook at all times.

Students must sign up for the appropriate course(s) when summer courses become available for registration in April 2015.

CPCC Painting Students Collaborate with Center City Partners

CPCC Drawing and Painting Faculty member Carolyn Jacobs is leading a collaborative Service Learning project with Center City Partners this semester. If you’ve made your way through the Art Wing of the Overcash Building on Central Campus, chances are you’ve been greeted by a dozen six foot tall Nutcrackers!  Jacobs’ Painting I class submitted around thirty designs to Center City Partners and eleven were selected to be painted. Students will earn Service Learning credit as well as a project grade. These eleven, which will be auctioned for charity, will go on display Friday, Dec. 6th at 7th Street Market, 5-9PM.  However, feel free to come by the Art Wing and see them in progress!!
