Painting

Do you appreciate Botticelli, Ingres, Delacroix, Kandinsky, or Matisse? Does that sentence mean something to you? If so, you may enjoy earning a degree in painting. Pierre Auguste Renoir once said, "There isn't a single person or landscape or subject which doesn't possess some interest, although it may not be immediately apparent. When a painter discovers this hidden treasure, other people are immediately struck by its beauty."

At Methodist University, we teach you how to stretch a canvas and mix colors. We also teach you to see the interest that Renoir is extolling. Your own creative point of view can then come through. And, although you may dream of your work hung in galleries so others can be "immediately struck," this isn't the limit to career options. Every work of art in a newspaper, magazine, book, or on a poster was created by an artist somewhere. It just took an appreciation to include it.
