Through Monday, Nov. 25, student paintings from Robert Straight’s two undergraduate Introduction to Painting classes will be on display in the building. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 4-5:30 p.m., and is free and open to the UD community.

Oct. 1: Lessons of love

Jayne Smith, who underwent a near-death experience while giving birth to her second child, will share her insights at a lecture that will be telecast in the Health Sciences Complex Atrium at the University of Delaware's STAR Campus on Wednesday, Oct. 1, from 3- 4:30 p.m.

The class explores beginning oil painting methods and material through both traditional and conceptual painting ideas, providing students with a foundation for discovering their unique potential for self-expression. The class includes both art and non-art majors.

With guidance from Straight, professor of art, students painted various items or concepts that are not normally seen by the human eye. Each painting depicts the student’s interpretation of the concept chosen and was painted on canvas using oil paints.

The paintings can be seen on the second, third and fourth floors of the academic wing of ISE Lab. Thursday’s reception will begin in front of the Problem-Based Learning Studio, Room 410, where the artists will be on hand to discuss and answer questions about their individual paintings.
