The Studio Art Program engages students in art making within the context of an undergraduate liberal arts education. Students will learn to use art materials and processes for creative expression. They will learn that their creative products have cultural, historical, and formal attributes, leading to an understanding of the relationship of visual arts to various disciplines and human practices. Throughout their coursework, their production will employ problem-solving skills and improve their perceptual, technical, aesthetic and conceptual abilities. The studio art major and minor will provide a foundation for students interested in pursuing careers in the visual arts.
The studio art faculty meet to analyze the data at the end of the academic year, discussing the results and making changes within the department if necessary, and making requests and addressing issues in our end-of-year report to the Office of the Provost as well.
