About This Degree

The emphasis of the Drawing/ Painting concentration is on the development of strong visual skills, a personal vision and an understanding of the wider implications of representation in contemporary culture. The problem-solving nature of the concentration fosters critical reasoning through experimentation with the varied qualities of drawing and painting materials and processes.  Students are guided to find a unique balance between both the freedom and the discipline that the medium provides. Emphasis is placed on craftsmanship, the embrace of experimentation concurrent with contemporary art practice, and the relevance of their work within the deep history and traditions of the medium.
