"Through a painting we can see the whole world."
Hans Hofmann

The Painting program at the University of South Alabama prepares students for future careers in painting and drawing through a rigorous curriculum of courses designed to build skills and develop understanding of important concepts in the field. Painting courses focus on the techniques and mechanics of oil paint and the study of color. Classes are structured in a traditional manner, centered around working from life. Students also develop their own subjects and conceptual approaches through independent work. Students are expected to demonstrate a high level of drawing and painting skill along with an ability to communicate their conceptual abilities clearly. Students graduating with a BFA in Painting can pursue careers in mural painting, commission artwork, portraiture, illustration and gallery exhibitions. Students can also pursue a Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Painting after graduation.
