2012 Summer Painting Intensives
Advanced Painting Intensive: New York
May 21–June 29, 2012
The Advanced Painting Intensive mentors a group of up to twelve students through individual and group critique, technical tutorials, exposure to the New York gallery and museum worlds, and lectures and critics by nationally known visiting artists. The six-week, six-credit workshop is based on the elements and structure of Columbia's MFA degree program and is tailored to those who are interested in challenging and advancing their work in an immersive and nurturing environment. Additionally, the workshop is geared to those who desire to develop both a strong visual portfolio and a written package appropriate for applications to MFA programs.
Advanced Painting Intensive: Paris
July 2–27, 2012
The Advanced Painting Intensive-Paris is an immersive four-week studio and research based program for intermediate to advanced painters. Through regular group and individual critiques each participating artist is mentored and encouraged to develop their ideas and art practice to a level more clearly aligned with their vision. The rigorous studio program is complemented by cultural studies engaging both historical and contemporary aspects of Parisian art. There is serious engagement with late 19th and 20th century French art history—visual art, literature, philosophy—with additional references to music and theater. Readings, lectures and field trips in these areas help to enhance the studio work.
