Discover Your Community

You'll find passionate faculty and peers for continued inspiration.

We provide students with the knowledge and tools you'll need to become informed, competent and creative artists. Bridging both the technical and conceptual approaches to painting, we offer a rigorous and supportive environment that encourages creative thought and personal growth through research, experimentation and critical discussion. You'll learn to develop a thoughtfully executed and skilled body of paintings and how to contextualize your work through readings, field trips and research.
