Siena offers courses in traditional and contemporary art forms.

  • Our interdisciplinary approach encourages students to develop a broad understanding of the visual arts.
  • Students master technical skills as they learn to think critically and analytically about their artistic process.
  • The creative thinking skills learned in art classes benefit students in a variety of careers.


In drawing and painting classes at Siena, students work with a dedicated faculty of practicing artists. We believe that the breadth of classes we offer allows students the opportunity to build a skill set tailored to their unique goals.

  • Students explore foundational media, such as graphite, charcoal, pastel, and acrylic early in the curriculum.
  • Intermediate courses focus on oil media and pastel.
  • Our core drawing and painting courses are supplemented with advanced courses in figure drawing, watercolor, printmaking, and other topics.

We look forward to working with you and sharing your passion for art.
