In the classical concept of painting, we see a window into another world. Artists have power in a moment of connection with a viewer. Strengthen your skills. Push yourself past one medium. In working in representational to abstract, oils to acrylics, to a little bit of all of it you’ll have resources and support to push past what’s comfortable. 

As a painting major it’s up to you to push back at what painting is expected to be, but it helps when you’re surrounded by mentors and influences that won’t accept the expected. Those who will inspire you to work hard and create work that you always desired to but never believed you could make.
