Fine Arts 2D

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The Fine Arts 2D Department comprises programs in painting and printmaking. After exposure to a broad range of ideas and techniques, students in both programs work individually with faculty mentors to develop their own direction and aesthetic values. As proof of its commitment to fostering creative independence, MassArt offers undergraduate and graduate students alike their own workstations.

Because discipline is key to the pursuit of both painting and printmaking, students devote ten hours per week to class time and an additional six to twelve hours per week in their studios.

Painting Courses teach basic painting techniques, from stretching canvas to representing pictorial space on a flat ground, as well as advanced processes for developing themes and experimenting with the form and content of painting. Critiques, slide lectures, and visiting artist presentations complement studio time.

Printmaking Courses instruct students in etching, lithography, silkscreen, and photographic print processes as well as drawing. Students also learn to apply the latest computer technology and materials, including digital imaging and color separation, to augment traditional printmaking approaches.
