Addressing traditional and contemporary techniques

At the Introductory level Painting students are introduced to a variety of technical, historical and conceptual approaches to the medium. Students are encouraged to work independently pursuing their personal vision, and also encouraged to work through a variety of directed exercises to explore different approaches to form. At the Intermediate and Advanced levels, students work more independently to develop a unique body of work.

Instruction is highly individualized, and students are required to pursue research intended to help enhance the content and to help contextualize their work. Students are asked to write and speak coherently about their work within this broader context. These skills enable the student to prepare and present their portfolio in a professional manner.
