The Art Education – Painting major combines the organizational and social skills of a teacher with the technical and conceptual skills of a painter. In addition to the classroom-centric classes all Art Education majors take, these students focus on developing the critical thinking skills necessary to be a professional painter.
Your painting courses will expose you to a broad range of studio and educational experiences. Your required classes will cover the fundamentals of painting and drawing: capturing the human figure and landscape, concept, color, composition, and the ever-expanding types of media that are used in today`s art world.
Your required classes are only one piece of the puzzle—you can also take a number of electives from every branch of the department: ceramics, photography, video, and more. These skills, combined with your classroom experience, prepare you for a successful future split between two passions: teaching and art.
