The Pennsylvania State University

School of Visual Arts

Drawing and Painting

The Drawing & Painting area of the School of Visual Arts is dedicated to theoretical and personal inquiry while maintaining the practice of art making as a cultural site. We encourage an inter-disciplinary, pluralistic, and multimedia studio practice that embraces painting, drawing, installation, performance, video, and computer-generated and web-based image making. At the core of creative development is the history of art and the interconnections of art and society as well as an acute recognition of studentsメ potential as creative artists.
