The Studio Art Program is designed for students who wish to concentrate on a specific studio discipline in the visual arts. The program requires a Foundations level of course work, which focuses on skill-building, exposure to various media, and art history. The Foundations level is followed by intense study in the chosen discipline. Three tracks are available: Drawing/Painting; Pottery/Sculpture; and Cross/Electronic Media. Additionally, the department offers optional gallery management opportunities. The program is appropriate for students who wish to work as independent artists, those who are interested in the M.A.T. with a concentration in Visual Art, and for those who wish to continue their education in Visual Art at the graduate level. Yearly portfolio reviews are required for continuation in the program.
