Painting has been the primary form of visual expression for thousands of years. With its ability to realize ideas with color, form, and descriptive clarity, painting appeals to artists throughout the world. Vital, durable and versatile, painting re-invents itself in every artist, and with every generation. Courses focus on technique and communication, leading students to individual creativity, originality, and expression.
