Painting: The Department of Visual Arts offers two sections of Painting I, which are taught in a rather large room that accommodates classes of up to twelve students. Storage is provided for paintings and supplies. Painting II and III are taught simultaneously in a less capacious classroom, as upper division classes tend to be smaller. Advanced students each have their own work area throughout the semester. Solvents and other basic supplies such as gesso and staple guns are provided by the department through lab fees.
