Art & Art History Major:
Studio Art Concentration

The studio art concentration emphasizes contemporary art practice as an exploration of concepts and materials. Working in a range of media, our students develop and refine a unique artistic vision that culminates in a thesis exhibition and a professional art portfolio. In the process of discovery that accompanies studio art, students acquire the ability to solve problems, design innovative exhibitions, and communicate effectively. Advanced Studio (ART 405), which can be repeated up to three times for increased depth, allows students to create an independent body of work that they exhibit on the LVC campus. Advanced Studio also fosters explorations of additional media, such as film or textiles, that are not offered through regular courses.
