Students begin by working from observation, developing skills and proficiency in oils. As students gain skills and abilities with oil paints they are encouraged to challenge the very notion of what painting is by exploring alternative tools, methods and surfaces.
Discipline and perseverance are strengthened as students develop a unique voice, conceptually and formally. In their senior year, students work closely with the Painting faculty to develop a distinctive body of work that is sophisticated in its content and scope.
Students will demonstrate:
- Fundamental knowledge and mastery of media and processes necessary to communicate meaning in a work of art.
- Ability to communicate clearly about their own art and the art of others.
- Knowledge about and be well versed in contemporary art and demonstrate the motivation to view and discuss current local, regional, and national exhibitions.
Art graduates possess a number of transferable communication, analytical, and critical thinking skills appropriate for work in traditional business as well as positions in academia and roles as freelance artists, graphic designers, art educators, art historians, studio fine artists and as “creatives” in government and industry. Many employers appreciate art majors for their multiple skills and their ability to adapt to a variety of tasks and work environments.
Participation in internships, cooperative education, and service learning opportunities is highly recommended to enhance practical training and development. Graduates who go on for advanced studies can attain more responsible positions with the possibility of rising to top professional levels.
