Painting Concentration

Painting in the digital era

Painting in the 21st century requires an understanding of traditional forms and the current technology in order to produce a rich image culture. The painting concentration offers experiences ranging from observational representation to highly experimental forms. Through these experiences, students are encouraged to cultivate their unique interests in form, process and subject matter.
