Halvorson was a 2017-2018 faculty mentor at Paint School, a free master class in the theory and practice of painting. This lecture-based program brings twelve fellows together with six individuals widely recognized as among the most exceptional painters in the New York City area.
Inspired by alternative educational initiatives like Black Mountain College, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and Core Program, Paint School is unaccredited but extraordinarily rigorous. Presented in the style of a post-graduate fellowship, this program aims to enrich the discourse of contemporary painting through peer exchange. Fellows are expected to possess a significant history of engagement with the field and a desire to participate in a community focused on dialogic interchange.
