Painting Curriculum

Experience Painting

By John Howell White

The Experience Painting curriculum offers a wide-ranging view of painting’s diverse media, tools, and processes, including encaustics, street art, and nontraditional approaches that will inspire teachers and students alike. Dazzling fine art accompanies the clear, practical text; hands-on studio experiences with step-by-step photographs allow students to build skills sequentially and invite experimentation. Teacher material supports inquiry-based practice and connections to other subject areas. Accomplished student artwork, historical background, career guidance, and point-of-use instructional support round out this exciting new addition to the Davis Studio Series.
