Art Studios and Labs
Studio spaces are large and offer both traditional and emerging technologies for students to learn and explore. Class sizes are small to ensure students have easy access to materials, equipment and professors. Studios and labs are open to students over 12 hours a day most days and students get personal studio spaces as seniors.
Art and art history students have access to a number of creative and research based internships. Students in the past have participated in internships as graphic designers, digital printers, gallery workers, social media coordinators, web designers, market researchers, and studio hands.
Students eligible for work-study can work in areas that overlap with their artistic interests in any studio area or the Foreman Gallery. You can gain practical skills during your time at college that will help you in your job search later.
Visiting Artist and Artist in Residence
Every semester Hartwick College invites artists to come to the college to show their work in the Foreman Gallery, give artist lectures, and demonstrate their technique and discuss aesthetics. Art historians are asked to present their research in lectures.
