Painting and Drawing

4 Year Check Sheet

Judging by its kaleidoscopic proliferation, painting has never been more vital than it is today. Despite this, some call into question the relevance of the practice of painting to 21st century culture. In a critical climate that is at turns exuberant and contentious, it is essential to empower students to form their own convictions about the medium. The Painting & Drawing major at UTC develops an abiding appreciation for the language of painting, a sensitivity to the formal and tactile qualities of the painted surface, the fluency to participate in the varied discourses surrounding contemporary painting, and the commitment and self-motivation necessary to the creative process. Upon completion of their studies, our students have forged distinctive studio practices and feel strongly compelled to make their own contributions to the field.
