A masters program in painting prepares students for the professional market by helping them improve on their creativity and technicality regarding the expression of their emotions, inner visions and ideas. The students are able to express their ideas through the application of paints and other color substances on canvasses or other available materials. Some of the lessons in painting include: instructions on color mixing and color, watercolor media, surface preparations, painting techniques, personal style development and oil& acrylic media.

While taking a masters program in painting, one gains a deeper understanding of the theory and practice of painting. Students enrolled or wishing to enroll in the program are asked to approach program with an open mind, an inquisitive sense, and willingness to experiment across media and take creative risks while perfecting their art. The aim of the masters program is to help the student to achieve independence; this is possible through the understanding of the ever shifting balance between content, form, and the subject matter.

Classroom work, group critiques, field trips, and assigned reading are part of the program that students are expected to undergo. Students are also encouraged to think critically and to challenge the commonly held beliefs and use their creativity to advance new ideas to their communities. Current and past painting issues are discussed in the curriculum and a master in painting is expected to be able to integrate theory and practice while unifying their artistic vision with their professional goals.

You are keen to gain more insight into the innovative potential of painting in a rapidly changing world. You are aware of the forces of physicality and materiality in artwork, and you take a painterly approach to conducting your experimental research into the functioning of perception psychology, cognition and imagination. A painting both reveals how ideas are imagined and shows how a material is edited and used. Taking a painterly and critical approach means harnessing materiality to create new links and associations. By combining ideation and materiality, transforming your ideas into unexpected, meaningful and powerful images, you determine the meaning and significance of your work in contemporary society. -

The core of Laguna College of Art + Design’s MFA program in Painting is built on the values of time-honored skills informed by contemporary theory and designed to help you realize the ideas possible through representational modes of painting and drawing. Our curriculum recognizes that there are particularly technical, ideational, and formal issues related to representation that require you to undergo specialized study at the graduate level, and we strive to meet these demands with a faculty and a curriculum tailored to your needs. The primary goal of the MFA program in Painting is to support you in building on the traditional skills you acquired in your undergraduate studies so that you may realize ideas possible in the discipline of representational art. You will achieve this goal through the creation of a coherent body of work, a written thesis, and a thesis exhibition. Additionally, you will gain insights into the presentation and marketing of your work and will be educated in the logistics of teaching art at the college level. -
