Painting/Drawing

The program is based on a two-step pedagogic approach that starts with a strong emphasis on the development of the student’s cognitive skills in foundational principles of drawing and painting such as color, value and space, and progresses towards a more conceptual approach. We also believe that there is a value in providing the student with a strong command of the use of the figure as an expressive medium. The drawing and painting faculty strives to establish a one-on-one mentoring relationship.
