Painting Minor

The Minor in Painting program is designed to introduce students to the foundation of painting media. Traditional and experimental painting in both figurative and abstract imagery is explored. Learning is both one-on-one and collaborative, so that personal exploration and wider aesthetic discourse are heightened.
