In Painting 1, students start by getting a strong foundation in observational painting.

In Painting 2, they explore different historical and contemporary ways of creating a painting.

The Painting Workshops are the advanced painting classes where students work towards creating a personal body of work that can be used in their senior BFA show or in a portfolio to apply to graduate schools.

Students have the choice to use oil or acrylic paint, and in the advanced classes they have access to a woodshop where they will learn how to build their own panels and stretcher bars.
