Contemporary art is increasingly transcendent of traditional
boundaries of a single medium. Reflective of this reality, the Studio
Art Division prepares students with a solid foundation. Perceptual,
technical and theoretical knowledge is absorbed through a choice of
focused studio experiences across the disciplines of ceramics,
drawing, glass, jewelry/metals, painting, photography, printmaking or
sculpture. From this open foundation, the Studio Art curriculum
encourages and fosters experimentation and risk taking as it allows
students to select intermediate and advanced level courses best suited
to the individual. The degree in Studio Art provides students with
depth and flexibility through expression in several media or
disciplines or expression within a single medium or discipline.
The Studio Art Division is committed to providing a positive environment in which a range of artistic viewpoints may flourish. The faculty prides itself in its ability to nurture diversity and independent thinking while closely assisting students in their search for a personal artistic vision.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio prepares students to actively commit to and engage with a variety of professional opportunities in the arts. We insist that art is vital to the well- being of all communities and that our students will play important roles in this effort wherever they go.
