Our Painting department is distinguished by both tradition and rebellion. The program celebrates the development of strong painting and drawing skills, an exploration of old and new forms (representational and abstract, 2D, and 3D), and an appreciation of independent, personal expression and risk-taking.
Top Graduate Schools
Our Painting majors are consistently accepted into the country's top ten fine arts graduate programs, including those at MICA, Yale, Columbia, ISD, and the Cranbrook Academy. Many have received prestigious awards, grants, and fellowships, such as the Fulbright Fellowship, Jacob K. Javits Fellowship, and the Freeman-ASIA Award.
