Students gain hands-on experience with artistic technologies as they complete independent and collaborative artistic research and projects.
The broad-based curriculum include study of art forms from around the world, women in art, and explorations in drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramics. Students can choose between two tracks in the studio art program, fine arts or design. The Fine Arts track explores personal expression and interpretation to investigate aesthetic boundaries and to develop concepts relevant in today’s world. The Design track connects creative thinking to pragmatic execution. The designer works as a problem-solver to create innovative solutions to complex problems.
