Painting students begin with a traditional sequence of structured courses. Such courses include color theory and drawing (with emphasis on observation and developing themes from still-life), landscape, abstraction, the figure, and developing new ideas from the imagination.

Additional courses in drawing, watercolor, and figure painting help foster a dialogue with traditional and contemporary approaches to painting. Advanced painting students are given the freedom to explore their own personal direction after being exposed to a variety of media and modes of expression. Using various dry and wet media, ideas are realized and ultimately a personal viewpoint and mode of expression are created.
