          Painting



          Studio Arts - Painting program students begin their studies with a thorough grounding in the skills required to successfully engage the traditions and contemporary practices of painting. Employing the still life, figure and various environments, Painting I and II students study color theory, color mixing, paint application techniques, and explore value, contour, shape and related formal concepts. Second and third year painters can choose from among a series of rotating special topics courses designed to give depth experience in defined areas. Interpreting the Figure, Color for Painters and Contemporary Abstraction are examples of classes available to painters. The final year in the painting concentration is dedicated to exploring contemporary issues in painting through the development of personally directed body of images.

          The painting program is taught by six highly credentialed professors who possess terminal degrees in painting from prestigious schools. Together, they offer a wide range of experiences and approaches that extend from the traditional to experimental. Students who graduate in painting leave EU fully prepared to apply to more advanced education in the fine arts or pursue careers as gallery artists or in illustration, book covers, medical illustration, CD/album covers, or freelance illustration.

          Graduate students are provided with individual studios. The Painting and Drawing Club hosts visiting artists and takes trips to art galleries and museums. Graduates in painting and drawing are currently working as freelance artists, gallery and museum directors, textile designers, and illustrators, as well as art teachers/professors.
