This program will focus intensively on the development of studio skills and methods in painting. It is designed for students who already have a strong work ethic and self-discipline, and who are willing to work long hours in the studio on campus in company with their fellow students. To be successful, students entering the program must have a solid background in representational drawing (including perspective, shading, and preferably some prior experience in figure drawing). Students will have the opportunity to develop technical skills in the use of acrylics and oils and to learn about the history of painting, with emphasis on 20 th century painting.

Students will address weekly studio projects in class designed to improve their understanding of color, composition, thematic research and studio methodology. Each student will create a series of paintings on an individual theme over the course of the program, and will research topics in art history related to their work in painting.
