studio art: painting

Clubs & Organizations…

Singing, theater and other groups are open to Art students and others interested in participating.

Art Faculty…

All of our Art faculty members share a teaching philosophy which emphasizes respect for personal expression and individual creativity.

Large windows enable students to paint by natural light in the spacious and well-ventilated painting studio located on the top floor of Reichhold Hall.

Painting students investigate and explore painting materials and techniques while researching traditional and contemporary art and artists. Achieving technical proficiency, students work with acrylic paints; learn to prepare surfaces for painting; how to prepare paintings for exhibition; and ultimately, how to use painting as personal and creative expression.

Please see the college catalog for specific requirements.

Gladys Greenbaum Meyers Juried Student Art Exhibition

Each year the Fine and Performing Arts Department offers every student the opportunity to enter the Juried Student Art Exhibition. This annual exhibit showcasing student work is made possible by a significant gift from Gladys Greenbaum Meyers '39, an avid and longtime supporter of the arts.

Capstone Project: The Senior Art Exhibition

Every senior completes a Capstone project, a culmination of work in their fields of study that allows them to demonstrate a deep understanding of a body of knowledge and perspectives informed by that knowledge. Each year during the spring semester, senior art students exhibit their strongest works in the Mugar Art Gallery. This exhibition is a required component of the Capstone Experience for all art majors.
