PaintingThe Middle Tennessee State University Art
Department offers a B.F.A. degree in Studio with a concentration in
painting, which is directed towards students who wish to work as
professional artist, in art-related fields, and/or work toward a
graduate degree (M.F.A). The painting area at MTSU provides
students with a well-rounded contemporary studio experience,
involving both traditional and experimental methods. Students are
exposed to historical and contemporary theory. As students progress
into the upper level painting program, they are encouraged to make
personal decisions based on issues such as content, concept,
materials, form, and presentation.
Safety is a priority in the painting area. To insure a healthier
working environment, students and faculty employ safe handling of
materials and encourages the use of the least toxic approaches.
Upper division painting majors will be provided studio spaces to
aid in their artistic development. Painting students are encouraged
to utilize these spaces to research and develop their ideas.
