The drawing/painting emphasis area at USU promotes experimentation with a variety of materials and methods. Each student is encouraged to develop a portfolio that reflects his or her own conceptual interests. Our rigorous program rewards students for hard work and encourages them to grow artistically. Students studying drawing/painting also have the opportunity to participate in a study abroad experience based in Essen, Germany. During this summer program students receive the same training that was offered at the renowned German Bauhaus School.
