PAINTING AND DRAWING:
The Department of Painting and Drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is a home to a diverse range of conceptual and material approaches. It is an open, pluralistic community with a primary emphasis on experimental consideration for painting in the 21st century.
Each semester, advanced students can apply to one of two sections of Advanced Painting Studio. Students share dedicated, private studio spaces from one to three consecutive semesters, working with faculty members three days per week. In many ways, this course begins to approach the intensity of a graduate program, requiring dedicated independent studio practice and rigorous conceptual development.
