MFA in Painting


This program is an integral part of the Painting and Printmaking emphasis. Its philosophy and practice define the photographic processes as fine art media, and concern only the vocation of the fine artist. Prerequisites for entrance into the photo area include all Art foundation drawing and design classes. Beginning painting and printmaking classes are also encouraged as being useful for entering photo students. One may concentrate in photo, printmaking, or painting as an upper division student with electives drawn from any other areas in the department (digital media, sculpture, furniture, etc). It also encourages interdisciplinary work involving photography used in conjunction with other art media. It is not uncommon for advanced projects to incorporate photo in sculptural and installation-based works.
