Painting is the act of using a certain medium to express form, value and various other ideas on a two dimensional surface. The expression and aesthetics vary; the medium and quality of mark making often determines the outcome, but as a whole, the infinite possibilities of painting have fascinated artists for centuries and it is through this experimentation with form, colour and medium that creative indtviduals have, in the history of art, sought to push the boundaries of what it means to paint and create a painting as a work of art.
Whether it is fresco, encaustic painting, oit acrylic or water colour; the intention is to transform the two dimensional surface; it is a task that requires a significant amount of technical and theoretical training therefore NCA is offering a One-Year Diploma Programme that will train students to experiment and understand the possibilities inherent within this medium of expression as well as acquire the necessary technical training that will inform their practice as independent painters.
