Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with a Concentration in DRAWING & PAINTING
The Drawing & Painting area of concentration prepares students to be leaders in an increasingly visual world. Painters creatively pose and solve visual problems through complex image making. Our students learn both the conceptual and formal approaches to painting, from representation to abstraction to experimental practices. Students study pictorial space, color mixing, life studies, and painterly applications.
At the core of instruction are individual and group critiques conducted by faculty and visiting artists. The Drawing & Painting faculty are dedicated educators, accomplished artists, and respected scholars. Our faculty are known for being actively engaged in helping each student develop her or his ideas, technical skills, confidence and professional knowledge.
