The Painting Minor provides students the opportunity to explore the technical, formal, historical and theoretical approaches to painting through a combination of studio and art history courses. Explorations in oil, acrylic and mixed media as well as analysis of contemporary practices lead to students developing personal strategies in painting. Painting minors will only participate in the senior show of their home department, however depending on space availability, they may utilize Fine Arts Senior Studios on a case-by-case basis with approval from the Department Chair.
The Painting minor is open to Communication Arts and Digital Media majors. Architecture/Landscape/Interiors, Fashion Design, Product Design and Toy Design majors are eligible on a case-by-case basis, with approval from their respective Department Chairs, and may require course approvals and/or additional credits over 130 to complete.
