Students in the Studio Art program are taught, mentored, and advised by practicing artists and scholars. They develop their own creative voices through the study of a broad range of contemporary and traditional modes of artistic production and can develop skills in design, drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, digital art, printmaking, and ceramics.
Both the Art History and the Studio Art programs are supported by museum and gallery exhibitions, which bring contemporary art and historical objects to support the students’ educational experiences.
