|Field of Study:||Fine/Studio Arts, General
|Description:||The Visual Arts program consists of courses in studio and in the history of art and visual culture. In both cases, our courses provide a practical and critical understanding of the visual arts emphasizing personal development. To this end students are introduced to a range of historical, theoretical and critical approaches to art-making and to the investigation of cultural documents. Students are encouraged to extend their experience through exposure to events sponsored by the Department of Visual Arts and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Students are also offered opportunities to visit galleries and exhibitions through field trips organized by the Department of Visual Arts or in the context of specific course curriculum.
Studio activities that include intuitive, analytical, and conceptual approaches are designed with the aspirations of the student artist in mind. Options are encouraged in the studio with introductory or advanced courses in drawing, painting, and interdisciplinary workshops; additional courses in sculpture, photography, or computer imaging broaden the experience and introduce the photographic, video, or electronic medium to students. Student learning is facilitated by artist-teachers who have professional experience and standing in the disciplines they teach.
