Painting Studio | Shaffer Art Building

The painting minor aims to extend your painting skills, develop your art and critical practices, and broaden your understanding and abilities to make and discuss art. It also aims to help you understand that a practicing visual artist needs to think globally and be knowledgeable in many cultural and social discourses in order to be conversant in contemporary issues and critical practices.

Whether the minor fulfills your desire to study painting or helps bring new skills to your major, the benefit for those who major or minor in painting will be advanced by the conflation of diverse skill sets, opening up creative, intellectual, and conceptual content to each other's work and class dynamic.

The minor is open to all Syracuse University undergraduates.
