The Painting program promotes the medium of painting in its varied manifestations as a fundamental form of artistic expression. Instruction, practice, and awareness of historical and contemporary context are brought together to enable students to think critically and imaginatively, and to express their ideas with skill and conviction. The principal component of the Painting program is rigorous studio activity. Critical dialogue and rigorous expectations about studio practice support work toward a fully formed artistic vision.
