Department of Painting was founded in the early years after the Islamic Revolution with aim of training and providing professors to the universities of the country. This department is the first institution of higher education in Iran that has begun establishing a master` s degree in painting. The goal is to create an atmosphere suitable for the growth and development of student artistic creativity. The professors of the department, while cultivating students in the pursuit of new styles with the Islamic-Iranian identity, also pay attention to the issue of the expression of content and the creation of a semantic relationship with audience. Most of graduates of this field, now served as professors and sometimes have executive and managerial positions at universities and art centers across the country, some others also act as professional artists in the country`s artistic community.
