The Department of Studio Arts provides an in‑depth program in Painting and Drawing, combining theoretical, historical, and practical study at all undergraduate levels. The aim is to provide students with a broad foundation on which they can base their own creative contributions.
Studio courses, seminars, and independent projects on such varied topics as collage, pictorial installation, popular culture, and narration supplement the core courses on painting and drawing. Recognizing the importance of providing basic skills and knowledge, in an atmosphere of freedom, the program is supported by a large number of faculty and guest artists, exposing students to a full range of approaches to drawing and painting.
A graduate program in Painting and Drawing is available for further studies.
