Painting + Printmaking Student Exchange with Tsinghua University, China

The Painting + Printmaking Department welcomed eight undergraduate and graduate students from Tsinghua University, Academy of Art and Design in Beijing, China for a two-week exchange course.

Coordinated by Ruth Bolduan, Painting+Printmaking professor, the students participated in an exchange program between the two universities, beginning with nine VCU Arts students attending Tsinghua University to take classes in experimental painting for two weeks last spring.

During the Tsinghua University students’ visit to VCU, an art show was held that included artwork from students at both universities. In addition, the undergraduates participated in VCU art classes, and the graduate students met with their VCU counterparts.
