Studio Art (Minor)

Program Description

The Studio Art minor provides students from other disciplines the opportunity to work intensively in studio art. Classes are taught by faculty involved in the contemporary art world and may include field trips, and film and image screenings.

Students may choose from a wide selection of studio art courses in 2D, 3D, and media, with the opportunity to explore the areas of:

  • Drawing/painting/printmaking
  • Sculpture/ceramics/metalsmithing
  • Photography/digital art/video/design

Instructors in each of these areas are artists of note actively engaged in their respective fields. As a complement to studio art practice, minors are encouraged to attend exhibitions and visiting artist lectures held weekly in the department.
