Painting | Bachelor’s Degree

Bennington College


In all painting and drawing courses, we aim to create an atmosphere in the classroom which prioritizes inquiry into the nature of representation itself, and the questions inherent in the relationship between empirical experience/observation and image making/understanding. Emphasis is placed on the exploration of assignments that provide parameters and questions for students that will lead them into legitimately formidable inquiry—rather than determining the approach that they might take formally. In this way, acquisition of technical skills is never separated from questions of the creation of meaning and the significance of images, especially in the world of today.
