Within our Graphic Design program, course work focuses on visual literacy; development of conceptual, aesthetic, and visualization skills; and creative problem solving. Students gain proficiency in traditional and computer design skills.
The objective of our Drawing and Painting program is to teach students an understanding of the expressive and investigative possibilities of the two-dimensional formal plastic arts. An open and ongoing dialogue about painting, drawing, and visual aesthetics is done in group criticism sessions as well as individual critique sessions.
Our Sculpture program offers our students a complete and well-rounded curriculum in the three dimensional art forms. Creative problem-solving in three-dimensional space and the history of the medium are the primary goals. It is important for the artist/student to be proficient in a wide range of materials and techniques.
Our bachelor of Arts in Art is designed to give the student the opportunity to study art in an intense setting, but also affords a broad liberal arts education. Core or foundation courses are required, as it is in the B.F.A. areas, but students may also take courses in other areas of the university.
