In the studio area, studies begin with introductory courses in Drawing, 2D and 3D Foundations, Photography and Art History. These courses are designed for the beginning artist and guide the student’s development in the visual arts. The program helps students expand and express their knowledge and grow in self-expression by exploring the processes and language that are basic to all visual arts. Rather than follow a system of independent courses in a given medium or discipline, students investigate issues and ideas in a variety of visual modes.
