Students in Painting classroom giving critique



Painting prepares students to engage in an individual search for meaning and cultural representation through developing strong visual skills, critical reasoning abilities, and broad  historical and social knowledge.

The first courses in the Painting sequence provide lessons in the technical use of materials along with current painting trends and significant techniques from past centuries. Professional expertise is not simply technical training; it is also the development of critical judgment and historical perspective required for convergent thinking. Advanced Painting courses help you develop purpose, direction, and confidence, along with the critical and technical skills necessary to express ideas as a professional artist.
