In the drawing and painting programs, students are given the opportunity to explore a variety of media, study with a large faculty, exhibit their work and take advantage of our wonderful studio spaces.
The drawing and painting program has six full-time faculty and provides a comprehensive education that fosters innovation and sustains tradition. The diversity and plurality of contemporary painting and drawing are reflected in the media and content of the faculty’s work. The drawing and painting program prides itself on the depth and breadth of its curriculum. Students develop formal, conceptual and technical knowledge through studio work in traditional and nontraditional media.
The drawing and painting program’s multiple studio spaces accommodate a diverse range of media, including oil and acrylic paint, watercolor, various drawing media and multimedia. The Martin Wong Studio provides a communal meeting place for critiques, seminars, visiting artist presentations and exhibitions of work from our BFA program. Senior undergraduates are eligible to be awarded private studios, and graduate students are given their own private studio at the School of Art’s Grant Street Studios building in downtown Phoenix. Our program fosters a community of artists who are passionately involved in the disciplines of drawing and painting. Students have access to the latest technological advancements across disciplines in the School of Art.
Visiting artists of national stature enhance the program with lectures and individual critiques each year. Students have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a variety of venues in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and take advantage of a wide array of internships in the larger art community. Numerous art and performing venues give students an opportunity to experience a plethora of art practice throughout the valley.
