The Painting and Drawing area at UCLA encourages innovation and experimentation while also familiarizing students with the history of the longest standing practice in the visual arts. Excellent facilities and renowned faculty, both tenured and visiting, combine to create a rich and rewarding atmosphere for artistic production. The Painting and Drawing area consists of five spacious studio classrooms with natural and artificial lighting, and include spectacular views of Los Angeles. The two Advanced Painting studios are divided up into individual work spaces, providing upper division undergraduates with a rare opportunity to work in their own studio space for an entire quarter. Six individual senior studio spaces are also awarded annually by a portfolio review. Facilities include a painting library, a wood shop for building stretchers, and a printmaking studio.
