PAINTING is one of three areas of study in Fine Arts. World-class faculty, who are active professional artists, teach all classes. Students in Fine Arts study each of the core disciplines—Painting, Sculpture/New Genres, and Photography—before selecting one or more areas to pursue in depth.
Painting students learn the basic principles, techniques and concepts of painting and drawing while developing their talent. Students learn to invent visual images of their ideas, passions and interests. Student artists in the program work on surfaces ranging from paper, canvas, panels, and walls among many other possibilities.
Students are exposed to the ideas and methods that make up the long, rich history of painting. Classes include abstract and representational approaches to the medium and how to use them to make successful paintings. Students experiment using a wide variety of materials (oil, acrylic, watercolor, spray paint and others) as part of their journey to become professional artists with their own unique direction. For Materials, Methods and Skills taught in the Painting Progam Download (PDF).
Students in the Painting Program work in three studio environments. The Galef Center Painting Studio has 24/7 access, a storage facility, an outdoor work area, and adjoining clean space where students present work for critique.
The Otis Midtown Studio on Wilshire Boulevard is the site of an unprecedented relationship that Otis has with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Students take classes at the Midtown Studio, which is just one block away from the museum. They are able to visit the museum weekly to study the LACMA collection and use it as a primary resource for their work.
The Senior Studios offer each student a private space to work in for the entirety of their senior year in the Fine Arts Program.
