The Art - Drawing, Painting and Photography program at Alfred University offers a comprehensive approach to visual thinking and the making of artwork. With equal emphasis on materials and concepts, the Division offers a broad range of courses and experiences to help students negotiate the myriad options available in contemporary art practice.


The  Art - Drawing, Painting and Photography program at Alfred University supports an inclusive approach to the disciplines of Drawing, Painting, and Photography and work to encourage your broad thinking, both about these media and about the world.

Cross Disciplinary

Through a progression of course work, you'll explore topics integral to each field, with respect toward both traditional and experimental practices. These courses, chosen with close faculty advisement, allow investigations that span and expand the range of what is possible in both thought and process. While you may choose to concentrate wholly in one area of Painting, Drawing, or Photography, cross-disciplinary work is also encouraged and valued.

Travel Abroad

In conjunction with the Santa Reparata International School of Art, the Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography has recently begun to offer a semester abroad in Florence, Italy. There, the students are immersed in the rich artistic traditions of this unique city and can use its influence in the pursuit of their own interests as contemporary artists. Through Santa Reparata, the Division offers a complete selection of studio classes as well as classes on Italian language and art history.
