Fine Arts

Contemporary artists use their talent, imagination, and skill to create works of art that add beauty and richness to the world. They produce work for a vast global network of museums, commercial art galleries, publicly funded arts organizations, and artist-run spaces. Taught by a faculty of active professional artists, students in Fine Arts delve into each of the core disciplines - Painting, Photography, and Sculpture/New Genres. - before selecting one area to pursue in depth.

 

Painting

Students learn the basic principles, techniques and concepts of painting and drawing while developing their talent.  Students learn to invent visual images of their ideas, passions and interests.

Photography

Students gain technical and conceptual skills to analyze and make photographic works of art while focusing on a medium with a wide presence in popular culture. Students learn analog and digital approaches to the medium.

Sculpture/New Genres

Students learn to create three-dimensional and time-based works of art. This very broad area allows students to explore the traditional forms of sculpture as well as the contemporary genres of installation, performance, video, and film.

Minors

Fine Arts students have the opportunity to extend and complement their studies by pursuing a minor in another department. View the list of minors here.

Emphasis Areas

Students may choose to focus on a particular medium within the Painting, Photography and Sculpture/New Genres programs.  Areas of emphasis include Contemporary Clay, Drawing, Editorial/Fashion Photography, Film/Video and Artists, Community and Teaching (ACT).

Internships

As juniors, Fine Arts students are encouraged to do an internship.  They may either take the Public Engagement/Internship course offered in the department or pursue other opportunitites through the Center for Creative Professions.
