The Painting and Drawing BFA Program

Students in painting and drawing benefit from the variety of views of faculty members who are all practicing and exhibiting artists. Studio work is complemented by trips to New York City to visit galleries, museums, and artists’ studios. Students pursuing the BFA major in painting/drawing take part in sophomore and junior reviews; all students participate in critique and review sessions conducted by the resident faculty, as well as by visiting artists and critics.

Students have access to nine studio classrooms specifically designed for painting and drawing, with large north-facing windows that provide excellent natural light. In the junior and senior years, selected students are assigned semiprivate studios.
