The introductory courses in the studio arts program allow students to explore basic studio areas through structured assignments. Students are encouraged to supplement their studio work with a range of art history courses. Intermediate and advanced studios allow students to continue to work in specific disciplines or visual directions independently and comprehensively.
Critiques, historical and critical lectures, technical demonstrations, and visits to art exhibits are integrated into the program. Advanced students work with faculty to prepare portfolios and exhibits of their work. The visual arts program presents professional art exhibits in the Alumni Library Atrium Gallery, the Daniel Arts Center, and other venues on campus.
