Studio Art

Studio Art Concentration

The Studio Art Concentration offers courses in both traditional and alternative approaches, designed to develop observational skills and promote a high level of craft. Advanced students are encouraged to identify and develop a strong personal point of view in their coursework and studio practice.

After completing several foundation courses, students are required to submit a portfolio to enroll in 300-level (or higher) studio courses. Students whose portfolios do not meet standards may be required to take supplemental courses.
