THE FINE ARTS MAJOR OFFERS

Do you think it is important to use and explore a variety of mediums?  Moore’s Fine Arts curriculum supports students' creative potential while they develop their self-identified emphases, which may include painting, sculpture, video, performance and installation.  In addition to individual studios, students have access to drawing and painting studios, the printmaking shop, metal shops and ceramics studio. Our accomplished faculty fully prepares students to build successful careers as practicing studio artists, educators and professionals. This program fosters the development of the individual creative voice through a range of traditional and new media.  Students exhibit their work in The Galleries at Moore, which has featured shows reviewed by Art Forum, ARTnews, artnet news, Art In America and Hyperallergic.
