Students are guided in their art studies through sequential classes with skill development in our strong arts foundation program and opportunities for development of an independent artistic voice in upper level classes.
The department is a comprehensive art studio and art history program offering three undergraduate degree options, along with two art minor offerings.
Concentrated studio class tracks of study in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional media are available through the department, including in-depth study opportunities in painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking. Students of all skill levels are welcomed into the foundation program. A low student-to-faculty ratio ensures that we can devote individual attention toward the development of our student artists.

Everything I learned through the communication courses has helped me—from public speaking, designing print materials and ceramics. I make a living creating art, preaching, communicating and telling stories.”
My show was bright, crazy colors, which was inspired by my graffiti background. I ended up painting acrylic on pottery. I learned to express myself freely though art.”
These have been incredible experiences and have matured my understanding of the pottery tradition and technical aspects of making.”
