Studio Art

The Studio Art major teaches technical skills, increases aesthetic sensibilities, introduces critical and analytical approaches to art making, and advances the student’s individual development in the core areas of ceramics, drawing, painting, print media (printmaking, photography, and digital imaging), and sculpture/time-based media (performance, video, animation). Upper-level students are encouraged to explore personal approaches and skills in diverse media and techniques. Individual Studies for the advanced student focus on conceptual approaches to artistic problems. Optional internships provide professional development beyond the studio environment. Studio Art majors culminate their studies with an exhibition in duPont Gallery or by submission of a senior portfolio.
