Senior art majors are expected to have their three-course sequence completed no later than the fall of their senior year so as to be properly prepared for their Capstone requirements.
The courses for this program are organized into the following categories:
The drawing sequence of courses are stacked, meaning the 2xx and 3xx classes are held at the same time. Students may include either variations of drawing courses, as long as there is a numerical sequence, for major and minor requirements.
Students should note that many studio courses are offered alternate years.
This series of courses covers perception, imagination, form, color and space with specific themes as noted. As students advance they are expected to develop their own voice as painters.
The painting sequence of courses are stacked meaning the 2xx, 3xx, or 3xx, 4xx classes are held at the same time. Students may include any of the four variations of painting courses, as long as there is a numerical sequence, for their major and minor requirements.
This series of courses begins with an introduction to basic conceptual development and modest technical instruction in areas such as clay modeling. Subsequent courses introduce more complex technical process such as mold-making, welding, casting, and woodworking. Advanced classes emphasize independent thought and personal conceptual development.
The printmaking sequence of courses are stacked, meaning the 3xx, and 4xx classes are held at the same time.
These courses cover basic 35mm camera operation, black and white film processing, and photo printing.
Some courses are offered alternate years.
