The Drawing curriculum at Union is a skill-based program designed to train the student in the use of a variety of different media and practices. While emphasis is placed on the development of proficiency in a particular medium, the major is exposed to trends both traditional and contemporary in drawing as a craft and is encouraged to explore personal forms of expression from a Christian perspective. The Drawing/Painting Lab is located in the Penick Building and supports multiple courses. The lab is outfitted with easels, stools art storage, safety equipment and ventilation for many types of materials. Private studio space in drawing may be awarded to deserving students for the pursuit of individual research.
