Why study a Masters in Painting?
Masters degrees in Panting aren’t simply about painting canvases of people or natural landscapes (though of course, they can be if you want them to). These courses also explore many modern approaches to painting, particularly with regards to technological advancements, and contemporary applications for painting.
For example, through a combination of disciplines such as nanotechnology and art, career could lead to developing painting techniques for products like cars and other vehicles.
Of course, if traditional painting is more your style, these courses can train you to become an independent art practitioner. You will experiment with both traditional and modern techniques for painting, examining historical periods such as the Renaissance, and scrutinising artistic movements such as fauvism.
From this, you may advance to join an artists’ guild, look to conserve historic paintings, or even branch into interior design.
