Painting and Drawing at SRISA
Drawing and Painting courses at SRISA offer students the opportunity to develop a technical, formal and intellectual understanding of painting and drawing while having a wealth of historically important masterpieces available to study first-hand. Students are encouraged to develop a strong understanding of the relationship between historical ideas and modern and contemporary artistic practice.

Painting and drawing courses are centered on the practice of working in the studio, and professors give students both individual and group instruction, often accompanied by demonstrations.
