Penn School of Dental Medicine

These paintings represent the efforts of some 30 students at Penn School of Medicine. They participated in creating 2 paintings each in Penn's selective, "Canvas Block". This selective course places the emphasis on painting, what you see, not what you imagine! The media is acrylic on canvas. Students are taught brush technique, illusion of distance, outline strategy for difficult structures, layering of painting, diaphanous effect and mixing of colors. The media is acrylic on canvas.
There are three subjects: White rhino, Americas cup - Newport Rhode Island, and Lake Erie, Chautauqua.
