Program Goals

  • Students will learn and develop the skills required to produce artwork of technical quality.
  • Students will produce a personal body of artwork which exhibits both technical mastery and quality of creative expression.
  • Students should be exposed to and gain experience in a wide variety of fine art disciplines and ideas.
  • Students will learn to produce materials for professional presentation of their artwork for the purposes of gaining acceptance into exhibits, finding gallery representation, applying for grants, seeking publication and applying for graduate school. These materials will include a portfolio of work, the artist's statement, a group of slides and a r?sum? all in support of the student and his or her own artwork.
  • Students should develop the sensitivity, understanding, and insight to produce artwork which is personally meaningful and creatively expressive.
  • Students should develop the ability to write and speak literally and insightfully about their own artwork.

Objectives

The Art Program offers an academic major and a teaching major leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree, as well as an academic minor and a teaching minor. The program provides courses for students wishing to concentrate in teaching and performance, for students with an avocational interest in performing and studio arts, and for students who plan to pursue graduate studies in art.

The program is designed to give students the skills and confidence in their abilities needed to produce works of art. To this end, students are given general knowledge about art and art history and are schooled in the techniques of drawing, painting, photography, and pottery. Students are encouraged to use and expand their imagination and to express their ideas creatively.
