For the Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting
The curriculum in painting requires 122 credit hours and provides extensive training in preparation for professional practice as an artist.
The first two years are devoted primarily to the study of design, composition, and acquisition of both representational and abstract drawing skills as well as the development of painting skills and techniques in a variety of traditional and alternative painting media. The last two years are devoted to the development of individual creative expression in painting and other media.
When followed by a program leading to a degree of Master of Fine Arts in Painting, this curriculum is recommended as preparation for a career as an artist and as a teacher of painting and drawing and related subjects at the college level.
