ART

Program Overview

Art is the study of visual thinking, idea generation, and the creation of aesthetic objects. This department explores concepts of creative intelligence and art making techniques for a full range of two- and three-dimensional forms and investigates the history of art in both Western and non-Western cultures. Students learn the language of art, design principles, and elements of composition, as the foundation for the communication of visual ideas into such forms as painting, drawing, photography, digital imagery, ceramics, new genres, sculpture, printmaking, and graphic design. Art analysis, theory, and criticism serve as the basis for problem solving.
