The painting area is housed in a recently renovated studio on the third floor of the Humanities Building (Room 305.) The studio offers designated areas for beginning, intermediate and advanced painting, as well as four individual studios for BFA students concentrating in Painting. The studio also includes a well-appointed workshop with pneumatic and electric power tools for all kinds of construction.
Students of Painting start with the ARS 210 course, which focuses upon the academic approach to observational painting of various still lives and self-portraiture as a means for learning to master the language of paint. At the intermediate and advanced levels: students are exposed to contemporary art and theory; encouraged to go beyond the technical issues of paint as well as to explore other processes and media; to address conceptual purpose and to strive to develop a personal aesthetic.
