Drawing and Painting

student drawing

Painting provides endless possibilities of expression in both meaning (the artist's intent, message, or subject) and form (a way in which an artist manipulates color and medium to create a personal identity or visual style). In the last decade we have become interested in the way paint can be applied non-traditionally - sprayed, splashed, dripped, and poured.

We attempt to bring this way of making art to the classroom. Through observation, theoretical application, and time-tested methods students are encouraged to further their studies by experimenting and exploring the unique ways paint can give credibility and meaning to new ideas.
