Drawing and Painting

The Drawing and Painting program is designed to assist students in the application and understanding of technical, formal and conceptual issues in historical and contemporary drawing and painting. Through intensive studio practice and critical dialogue with peers, faculty and visiting artists, students are encouraged to broaden their awareness and develop their own personal expression.

Lower-division courses emphasize the comprehension of drawing and painting as a fundamental visual language, and the development of basic skills. Intermediate and advanced courses focus on the relationship between the practice of drawing and painting and the communication of ideas.
