About this program
Since the beginning of human history, people have had a need to create images and objects. These impulses emerge for different reasons--communication, commerce, an act of devotion, necessity for utilitarian wares, personal expression, decoration, therapy, and so on.
Courses offered in studio arts allow students of various skill levels to examine the history of art and craft, sharpen critical thinking skills, and explore the possibilities of the sometimes instinctive and elusive creative process. To these ends, a minor is offered in studio arts.
