Bachelor of Arts in PAINTING Northern Kentucky University
Painting requires an inventive, open-ended approach to image making, perception, and communication. Painting allows one to experiment with the possibilities of light, depth, color relationships and composition in service to the medium. Students of painting will learn how to use materials to the best of their ability in addition to insightfully addressing content in their work.
The painting area at NKU stresses the development of perceptual skills as well as inventive visual expression. Students, at levels appropriate to their abilities, are encouraged to take risks that expand the boundaries of the media, of composition and of conceptual strategies. Successful painting students leave the university with an increased capacity to make artwork that is both relevant and engaging.
