Art Studio

The Art Studio Concentration emphasizes the fundamentals of the visual arts while introducing students to a wide range of traditional techniques, new technologies, experimental practices and visual theory.  Through direct experience, students build a technical skill set and a general knowledge of the visual arts that provide the foundation for undertaking a deeper creative investigation in their thesis projects.  During their studies, students build confidence in technical and creative problem solving, visual analysis and critical discussion.  The experience is enriched by numerous visiting artist lectures, workshops and extended field trips.  We strive to graduate majors who are prepared for future creative work and have a sensitivity to the visual arts that will inform their lives whether or not they choose to pursue further study or careers in the arts.
