Painting students learn the basic principles, techniques and concepts of painting and drawing while developing their talent. Students learn to invent visual images of their ideas, passions and interests. Student artists in the program work on surfaces ranging from paper, canvas, panels, and walls among many other possibilities.
Students are exposed to the ideas and methods that make up the long, rich history of painting. Classes include abstract and representational approaches to the medium and how to use them to make successful paintings. Students experiment using a wide variety of materials (oil, acrylic, watercolor, spray paint and others) as part of their journey to become professional artists with their own unique direction.
Students in the Painting program of Otis College of Art and Design work in two studio environments. The Galef Center Painting Studio has 24/7 access, a storage facility, an outdoor work area, and adjoining clean space where students present work for critique.
The Senior Studios offer each student a private space to work in for the entirety of their senior year in the Fine Arts Program.
Areas of emphasis within the Painting Program include Drawing and Artists, Community and Teaching (ACT).
