Painting


Painting is a model for knowledge, a way of knowing the world. That's the core philosophy of most painting program, where uncovering what you want to say carries equal weight with learning how to say it. Students choose whatever materials, processes, forms, and formats that best enable them to express their relationship to the world. All approaches - traditional and non-traditional -- are supported and thoroughly discussed in the context of painting's rich history. Students graduate not only with a sense of their own voice, but with an understanding of where they fit in painting's rich lineage.
