Department of Art and Art History Studio Art

Division of Studio Art

The Studio Art program transmits a solid foundation in a wide range of studio practices. Students experience historical and theoretical models, providing a vocabulary to understand and engage with art’s critical discourse, and are prepared to function as professionals within defined disciplines and career specializations of the visual arts. They also achieve personal fulfillment through a qualitative understanding of the varied methods of creative expression. Through an exploration of the ideas and forms at the leading edge of knowledge, these students develop the capacity for experimentation and invention to create new forms of studio art.
