Make a Bold Stroke

You'll investigate classic subjects from art history such as still life, landscape, and the figure. Painting instruction covers acrylic, oil, encaustic, making acrylic paint from pigment dispersions, creating and using paint "skins," mural and installation projects, and learning the uses of digital technology and painting. Refine your own vision and connect with a community of your fellow student-artist in upper-level courses.

Paint by Nature

Develop your craft while you enjoy the outdoors.

Students in the art discipline have the opportunity to paint, draw, photograph and create installations in the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum. Grants are available for student study and projects on the 290 acres encircling the UW-Green Bay campus that features trails moving through forests, prairies, ponds, creeks and other beautiful and thriving ecosystems.

Be heard. Be Pushed.

"[UW-Green Bay] provided the best opportunity anyone in any field of study could get, which was a close, one-to-one student/professor relationship that has helped me grow as an artist. My professors took the time to get to know me, hear me, push me, and support me every step of my journey at UW-Green Bay."
