Painting

Undergraduate Studio
PAINTING
Department of Art and Art History
Hunter College

  

Location

The Undergraduate Painting studios are located on the main campus of Hunter College at 68th Street between Lexington and Park Avenues. The 11th floor of the North Building is home to the main office of the Department of Art and Art History and houses studios for painting as well as workshops for printmaking, photography, computer graphics, metal, wood and plaster. 

 

Undergraduate painting provides a strong foundation in a wide variety of materials and processes, and encourages experimentation and involvement with the other workshops in the art department. The community of students represents a wide range of interests, nationalities, ages and backgrounds.

 

The Studios

The Painting area on the 11th floor consists of two large, light filled studios with easels and painting carts, a large rack room for drying paintings and several critique rooms.

 

The studios are equipped with a spray booth for spraying and sanding. Brush cleaning stations, continually updated with new equipment, are part of an ongoing effort to place emphasis on ecological awareness and healthy studio practices.

 

Stretcher Library

There is a new Stretcher Library that allows teachers to loan stretchers to students for the semester.

 

 

Open Studio Hours

Students have access to the painting studios seven days a week when not being used by classes. This allows students to work outside of class and maintains a vibrant and diverse painting community.

The Kossak Painting Fellowship

Evelyn Kranes Kossak (42’) majored in Art at Hunter. Today, her generous support subsidizes the cost of materials to every student taking painting courses at Hunter and provides for Kossak Painting Fellowships -- awarded to advanced undergraduates. Each fellow receives a generous stipend for supplies, plus the chance to discuss his or her work in weekly critique sessions with many of the most highly respected painters working today.
