Our intimate, hands-on course of study focuses on the basics of a sound Art education. Our students learn, through practical experience, how to use the tools, mediums, and techniques of artists. Although this minor prepares students to become practitioners of the visual arts and graduate students, studying art allows all students to acquire the knowledge necessary to create a personal response to a variety of issues. Students are encouraged to develop a personal statement within their work while they produce projects that range from creating paintings to sculptures.
Popular occupations in the art field include museum and gallery coordinator, art therapist, teacher, photographer, computer illustration, and freelance artist.
