Overview

Painting is a traditional and broad artform consisting of representational, imaginative, or abstract designs produced by application of colored paints to a two-dimensional, prepared, flat surface. The elements of design (i.e., line, colour, tone, texture) are used in various ways to produce sensations of volume, space, movement, and light. The range of media (e.g., tempera, fresco, oil, watercolour, ink, gouache, encaustic, casein) and the choice of a particular form (e.g., mural, easel, panel, miniature, illuminated manuscript, scroll, screen, fan) combine to realize a unique visual image.

Students may produce realistic or abstract paintings and receive special instruction in portraiture, still life, and plein-air painting. Drawing instruction with various materials including charcoal, chalk, pastels, and pencils is an important part of preparation for painters.

Assistant Professor Philip Jackson is the head of the painting program and is assisted by four graduate students.
