Art & Art History Major:
Studio Art Concentration

The studio art concentration includes a wide array of courses in ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. Students choose at least one medium for further exploration at the intermediate level, at which point they develop a personal connection to the art making process through increasingly more complex projects. 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.
