Drawing and Painting Major

LCAD's drawing and painting major is one of a few undergraduate (BFA) and graduate (MFA) programs whose educational focus is to produce highly skilled, representational drawers, painters, and sculptors. The program and curriculum is based on classical traditions. Students learn core skills to accurately portray the still life, figure, portrait, landscape, and group figures to address concepts and ideas of contemporary, narrative storytelling.

In addition to mastering technique, the business of art is integrated in the curriculum. Students are introduced to professional practices, marketing and presentation to beprepared for the challenges of a demanding and competitive art world.

Sculpture Minor/Emphasis

LCAD is unique in being one of only a handful of accredited colleges that offer classes in figurative sculpture. Raymond Persinger is the coordinator of the Sculpture Department. A classically trained figurative sculptor, Ray has created sculptures for science museums around the world and continues to receive public art commissions. Our classes employ a variety of techniques, producing works ranging from half life-size to life-size. These courses are a valuable hands-on approach to advancing drawing, painting and animation skills. Courses in sculpture can be combined to earn anemphasis or a minor in sculpture.
