The Studio Art major offers a multidisciplinary view of current art practice. The Department emphasizes exposure to a range of media in small classes with individual attention. Through technical skill and creative thinking, students are encouraged to develop a personal, disciplined direction with an understanding of their place in art history and contemporary art. The curriculum provides studio experiences in drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, printmaking and graphic design. Exhibiting artists in the Cultural Arts Gallery and visiting artists are a regular presence in the department and enhance student learning through lectures, collaborative projects and studio visits.
