Painting (Major)

Program Overview

The Painting Department's curriculum is generous, varied, and attuned to the individual needs of its majors. Painting electives represent a wide array of artistic experiences ranging from figure and landscape painting options to courses that address subjects such as personal narrative, digital media, collaboration, performance, and installation art. The number of painting and studio electives built into the degree plan exceeds the number of electives offered by any other department, thereby allowing painting majors great freedom in their course offerings.

Faculty and visiting artists and critics have a diverse array of aesthetic sensibilities, maintain active studio practices, and exhibit their work in various venues - and also act as role models and mentors as you find your own voice as an artist.
