About the Department
The studio art curriculum is designed to develop and give depth to the student’s artistic point of view by combining material, historical and conceptual training within the context of a liberal arts education. Our classes function as active learning environments where academic and creative growth is fostered through practice. Students learn how to shape materials, explore traditional and contemporary ideas and acquire creative and analytical problem-solving skills. Most studio courses meet for approximately four contact hours per week, allowing for class discussion, the acquisition and evolution of skills and ideas, and individual instruction between student and faculty.
