2016-2017 Catalog > Undergraduate Studies > Undergraduate Minors > Studio Art Minor
Coordinator: Gary Cuddington
The minor in studio art exposes students to fundamentals of design, drawing and painting, and develops visual and creative thinking skills.
Fine art is about layers of meaning, about the visual message in relationship to us as people. Students are required to address hard questions and become more articulate visually. As the world moves toward a fast-paced, visual-based, computer-linked society, it is within studio art that rigorous academic studies and personal expression merge in a new understanding of life as an integrated whole. The cognitive skills developed during the creative process span the skills needed for a creative approach to life.
Total Credit Hours: 16.0
