Drawing & Painting


The drawing & painting emphasis area at USU promotes experimentation with a variety of materials and methods. Each student is encouraged to develop a portfolio that reflects his or her own conceptual interests. Our rigorous program rewards students for hard work and encourages them to grow artistically. Students studying painting and drawing also have the opportunity to participate in a study abroad experience based in Essen, Germany. During this summer program students receive the same training that was offered at the renowned German Bauhaus School.
