The study of art opens the mind to a wealth of possibilities and allows students to discover their unique skills. Artists and designers produce visual expressions of culture that investigate and redefine our world. The art program prepares students for the real world practice of art and design.
The General Studio BFA emphasizes the development of individual ideas, expressed through technical skills in a variety of media and practices that range from the graphic design, photography (digital and black-and-white non-silver), sculpture (full wood and metal shops, bronze foundry and digital lab with laser cutter and CNC router), installation, painting, drawing, performance, video/sound recording and editing, electronics/physical computing, specialized digital output and biological art.
The BFA degree focuses on intensive work in studio art, supported by a smaller, more defined program of general studies.
