The Painting Course introduces students to the culture and activities of the artist’s studio, guiding students through a series of sequential and historically-based exercises designed to create a progressive learning experience.

Each student is provided with a studio workspace and begins with basic oil painting exercises. As students progress, they move on to more complex exercises, and are introduced to ideas such as paint handling and color theory. They also become familiar with studio practices like canvas preparation, in order to enhance their understanding of the artistic process. The Painting Course culminates with the creation of resolved paintings of plaster casts and still-lifes.

Within the Course, individualized instruction allows students to move through the curriculum at their own pace. Should students wish to accelerate their progress, they may enroll in multiple daily classes. Figure Painting classes are also available to supplement the lessons learned in the Painting Course.
