About the 2D: Painting Studios
The San Francisco Painting Studios are large, open, sunlit rooms situated next to expansive north-facing windows that run the length of the Montgomery building (the main building on the campus).
Within these open spaces Painting/Drawing students are encouraged to build an energized painting community, hosting such events as the student-led Painting Club and Graduate Drawing Group, Figure Drawing Nights, Stretcher Bar Tutorials, and the small-talk lecture series Notes from the Studio that features casual artist talks by the Painting faculty.
