Fine Arts - Art

The Fine Arts Program provides students with strong technical and critical thinking skills.

Studios are taught by artist-teachers who are active professionals in one or more visual arts disciplines. Faculty provide a dynamic mixture of media, craft and aesthetic viewpoints that expose students to a lively variety of ideas and attitudes about art. In this context, art students are encouraged to develop their own innovative philosophies and approaches to art, as well as a unique visual language. Studio practice is complemented by art historical and visual studies courses in survey and seminar formats, and by a series of theory-based courses that cover avant-garde forms of expression from Modernism to the present.
