Empower Your Creations
Discover and develop your passion for art with a major or minor in Studio Art. Here, students study painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and imaging (photography, video and new media). The major begins with rigorous introductory courses and quickly moves on to more focused intermediate and advanced offerings. Studio Art courses at all levels are designed to help each student explore a broad range of concepts, methods and materials while developing individual ideas and a personal voice. Consistent throughout the Studio Art experience is attention to craft, development of a refined understanding of formal relationships, exercise of a rigorous practice of art making, and exposure to a broad range of historical and contemporary examples. As part of a liberal arts education, Studio Art is one of the few places where students can creatively engage in the development of a visual language, and this study prepares them for further study in graduate programs as well as a wide range of careers. Students often enrich their interests in studio arts with both similar and dissimilar majors and minors, including Economics, Architectural Studies, Writing and Rhetoric, Media and Society and many more.
