Why Art?

We see ourselves as a laboratory in which students from all disciplines can engage with the unique skills and modes of thinking that art-making demands. The immediacy of making and the risks of experimentation combined with necessary critical thinking, collaboration, and problem-solving produces a transformative learning experience that parallels innovation in any field. Courses focus on the conceptual and material understanding of creative practice and also on the significance of art within the broader social and historical contexts in which it is made.

Students select courses across four areas of study:

  • Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking¬†
  • Interdisciplinary Art and Social Practice
  • Photography and Moving Images
  • Sculpture and Ceramics
