The School of Visual Arts has a long history of offering studio classes in painting, sculpture, drawing and ceramics to both Studio Art majors and students from Visual Communication Design. The Studio Arts Program is looking to the future to prepare students for the digitally enhanced world by offering a range of classes in new media and creative technologies including, digital photography, digital video and visual effects, digital painting and 3D animation and modeling. The built-in flexibility of the studio curriculum encourages students to explore and develop their talents, interests and aspirations. The Studio Arts Program encourages innovative approaches to making art by exploring areas in which different media and disciplines might overlap or intersect. The Studio Arts Program fully equips the emerging artist with the tools to communicate ideas, and to explore expanded aesthetic possibilities, to discover new boundaries in artistic expression and to address the impact of art and creative technologies on our lived experience. The Studio Program invents the future from a solid experience in the traditions of studio practice.
The B.F.A. in Studio Arts is specially addressed to students who aim to continue their education as artists at the graduate level. A required entry portfolio review determines acceptance into The Studio Arts Program
