Fine Arts

The Art Department offers a strong foundation in the visual arts. You’ll begin with classes in drawing, design, art history and appreciation. Then you’ll develop your painting, drawing and sculpture skills. Many specialized classes are available including printmaking (silkscreen, intaglio, and lithography), watercolor, acrylic and oil painting, figure and experimental drawing, sculpture (including welding and bronze casting), jewelry, ceramics, mixed media and installation art. The classes you choose will depend on your interests and the program option you select.
