Bachelor of Arts, Studio Art Concentration
The Painting Program consists of a series of courses in acrylic and mixed-media painting
offered during the academic year:
Painting I (ART 231) is an introduction to the painting process with an emphasis on
developing observational, technical and conceptual painting skills. Historical and
contemporary approaches to painting are researched and explored in individual projects.
Students gain an understanding of color theory and practice, painting techniques,
safety concerns, and construction of painting supports, and learn to apply that understanding
to individual image-making.
Painting II & III (ART 331 & ART 431) provide for continued exploration in painting
and mixed media. Goals for these courses include: improvement in technical painting
ability, development of individual expression, and creation of a personal vocabulary
of shape, form, color, etc., leading to thematic connections.
Advanced Painting (ART 432) provides instruction and assistance for students preparing
a Senior Portfolio, seeking graduate and professional opportunities, and committing
to a higher level of sustained studio production. Practical issues involved in the
making, documenting, presenting, exhibiting, and promoting of artwork are discussed.Learn more about the Bachelor of Arts, Studio Art Concentration
