The Susan Macdowell Figure Painting Competition is a highlight of the Painting Department every Spring.
Designed to test the skills of students around a major curricular element, life painting, the competition encourages comradery, self determination and hard work in the department.
This year's judge was appointed faculty member Peter Van Dyck.
First Prize Winner is Alina Osipov
Second Prize Winner is Grace Isabel
The competition is generously funded each year by an alum who is very proud of PAFA and her students.
