Department of Oriental Painting from Seoul National University is currently organized into a four-year undergraduate program (BA course), and two-year graduate programs (MFA course and DFA Course). 


The Oriental Painting department from Seoul National University has long been succeeded by traditional plastic art theories and styles of Korean portrait and landscape art (San-su hwa). We actively search for ways to translate Korean historical art into contemporary Korean art based on philosophical and aesthetical application of traditional paintings of literary artists (Mun-in hwa).

Learning outcomes

Within the freshman year (first year of undergraduate school) students are expected to synthetically experience the interrelationship of Korean and Asian arts with Western arts, as well as amass broad expression capabilities through technical skill and the study of the humanities. 

Henceforward, our undergraduate program aims to encourage students’ experimental attitude toward forms grounded on Eastern aesthetic, and concentrates on cultivating individual’s creating ability with enhanced expression capability and deepened plastic art theory simultaneously.
