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.
