A vibrant community of artists, scholars and students are brought together within VCUarts Qatar’s four-year BFA Painting and Printmaking program.

The curriculum is informed by a practice of studio work and research with a strong emphasis on critical and creative thinking and is designed to impart technical skills and intelligence to build a student's confidence in their discipline.

The experience and diversity of the faculty guarantees our students' exposure to multiple ideas and stylistic approaches. In addition, the department's visiting artist and publishing program brings to campus leading figures in the world of contemporary art for discussions of their work, critiques of student work and workshops.

To artists working in this century and the globalised world, engaging in our academic studio program in painting and printmaking is akin to entering a workman-like laboratory to investigate and re-define visual culture.

We welcome you to join us – to bring your intelligence, ambition, and can-do discipline – as we examine our historical precedents, and challenge the future of studio practice.

Be part of an emerging fine art community, work with a range of mediums, learn to work independently and gain a rigorous, rewarding, multicultural experience.
