Overview.

Works of art and design impact our lives on a daily basis. From the clothes we wear, to the high tech tools we rely on, good art and design requires an understanding of visual language, functionality and innovation.

Our goal is to help you develop foundational skills, to encourage exploration in various art materials and techniques, and to inspire innovation and self-expression. Studio course offerings include fundamental studies in drawing, color theory, 2D/3D design, and graphic design, as well as courses that advance creative practice in drawing, painting, sculpture, small metals, and digital media. Art history courses appeal to both art majors and GE students, laying the groundwork for a life-long appreciation of art and artifacts of world cultures.

Students interested in pursuing careers in Illustration, Animation, Graphic Design, Web Design, Art Education, Art History, Museum Studies, Architecture, Industrial Design, Fashion, Interior Design, and Fine Arts can begin their studies here. Non-art majors take art classes to enrich their lives with a creative outlet.
