The Fine Arts program fully prepares students to build successful careers as practicing studio artists, educators and professionals. It fosters the development of the individual creative voice through a broad curriculum that includes a range of traditional and new media that progressively builds upon the development of skills and professional practice.

The curriculum ensures that students develop the knowledge and skills to conceptualize and execute projects independently, and complete an ambitious body of work as a culminating senior thesis. An emphasis on critical thinking, problem-solving and risk-taking throughout the program encourages students to develop confidence to experiment and the self-reliance to become courageous life-long learners. The interdisciplinary curriculum supports students' self-identified emphases, including painting, sculpture, video, performance and installation.

In addition to the individual studios, students have access to drawing and painting studios, the printmaking shop, metal shops and ceramics studio. Read more about the major...
