Painters, complete and multidisciplinary artists.

Painting is an artistic discipline that permits the combining of passion and profession into a unique career and life choice.

Painting as part of a network of knowledge.

The two-year Master of Arts Degree Program in Painting at RUFA is a degree that provides a solid foundation in theory and practice, designed to place students at the center of a substantial network of knowledge and multimedia experience, that will form a complete artist, able to apply creative expression in any of the artistic disciplines.

In order to achieve this, the course of study lends importance to the history and early influences that contribute to the origins of painting, exploring and analyzing the fundamentals such as the techniques and technology of painting, the sociology of contemporary art, the history of new media, phenomenology of art and the imagination, and digital application of the visual arts.

Painting students at RUFA will find themselves on an innovational multimedia voyage, which is up-to-date and multi-purpose and will transform them into complete and well-versed artists.
