Drawing & Painting

As a Drawing and Painting major, you will study not only drawing and painting, but also art appreciation, art history, design, printmaking and other studio art areas. You will have access to well-equipped studios and instruction in a wide range of techniques.

UNT's Drawing and Painting students spend a lot of time in studio classes creating original works, studying aspects of the field and examining a variety of media with which to work.

The Studio Art faculty are accomplished artists in their respective fields, maintaining private studios and gallery contacts. Each exhibits widely and travels extensively to maintain a current and high status in their field. 

As a Drawing and Painting major in the studio art program, you will get a great deal of hands-on experience in your classes. Students majoring in Drawing and Painting have opportunities to exhibit their work in competitions that are judged by professional artists. In addition, you can show your work on campus and at local and regional galleries.

The B.F.A. with concentration in Drawing and Painting prepares you to become either a self-employed artist or to pursue a master of fine arts degree. Self-employed artists show and sell work in galleries, museums and a variety of other venues. The M.F.A. degree would open up teaching opportunities at the college and university level.
