The major in studio art includes core courses in studio art and art history, which are to be taken during the first two years. In addition to the core program, the studio art emphasis includes upper-level work in art history and a three-course and a two-course sequence in two of the following studio areas: painting, drawing, ceramics, photography, printmaking, or sculpture. Special opportunities to study glassblowing, as well as letterpress, book arts and papermaking are available through directed study tutorials.
Participation in the Sophomore Review held at the end of the fall semester is required. The core courses in studio art must be completed successfully before the student majoring in studio art may participate in the Junior Review, a one-week exhibition with a group critique, which is held in the Foreman Gallery, Anderson Center for the Arts. Successful completion of the Junior Review is required before an art major may begin the senior project, which is the culmination of the major in art. The senior project, an exhibition of original work, is done in the spring of the senior year.
