Description

Students are exposed to a wide range of drawing and painting concepts and paradigms, historical and contemporary. Emphasis is on the progressive maturation of a personal artistic identity through studio-based projects that call for independent thinking and practical experimentation. Technical guidance is tied to the individual student’s expressive purpose.

Program Objectives

  • Students demonstrate independent, creative problem solving and original thinking through the development of a distinct and personal approach to art making informed by contemporary issues and historical precedents.
  • Students demonstrate critical and conceptual development through research and analysis, applying readings, theories and methodologies toward the production of critically informed artworks.
  • Students will acquire an awareness of contemporary issues broadly speaking, within the disciplines of art and beyond.
  • Students demonstrate proficiency in a number of advanced techniques in their individual studio practice, including a deep familiarity with materials and processes.
  • Students demonstrate an awareness that craft/content/format are of equal importance.
  • Students demonstrate knowledge in the history of their discipline and an understanding of how their work relates to that history.
