Art Learning Goals and Objectives

Our faculty to student ratio allows students to receive individual attention both in and out of class. Studio art classes are taught by professors and working artists with MFAs, rather than graduate students.

  • Our students develop their own artistic voices, concepts, and vocabulary while honing technical skills.
  • Students learn the traditions of drawing, printmaking, painting, and sculpture and may combine these areas with performance, installation, and moving-image.
  • Studio art majors participate in solo and group reviews of their work.
  • Professional development is included in the studio as well being the focus of Art 411, a seminal course with practical skills for transitioning to top-tier graduate schools and careers in the arts.
