Painting syllabi samples

I am composing a sample painting syllabus to join my drawing syllabus. Here are some good examples:

Christine Wilcox's undergraduate painting course uses Painting as a Language as a textbook.

John Carlander's syllabus tells a story and depicts a warm and open environment in which to start to become a painter:

Kamrooz Aram's summer introduction to painting at Columbia

A minimalist syllabus from Bert Yarborough for a summer class at Harvard:

Here's one with an enthnic community perspective by Bryan Keith Thomas
Ethnic Studies Studio: Painting in/within Our Communities
http://www.ccac-art.edu/capl/pdf/Keithsyllabus.pdf.

St. John's College has an amazing course:

Learning to paint is an artistic growth gained by figuring out one's own uncharted paths through life and expression. These syllabi offer a number of different styles of facilitating the complex knowledge about how to make a painting that expresses both personal and shared meaning within a compostitional unit.
