Studio Arts

The arts photo

 

The Studio arts are an essential cornerstone in developing well-rounded and innovative individuals for both art and non-art majors alike. Students learn the specifics of studio art mediums in a hands-on program designed to develop creative skills while fostering a theoretical and historical understanding of the arts. The fundamental building blocks of all studio art courses are to instill skills in: divergent thinking, creative problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity.

Outcome:

Students learn divergent thinking through self-exploration and personal experimentation. Discovering innovative solutions through examination, education, and perseverance develops creative problem solving skills. Critical thinking skills are honed when students are asked to respond conceptually and formally to challenges with consideration of their own personal experiences and observations. Creativity is fostered through challenging and goal driven projects that are open to individual interpretation and self-exploration. These qualities learned in our studio art classes are also skills that are utilized in nearly every aspect of a person’s education, career and journey through life. 

Requirements: 60 credits = A.A. Degree

Each semester (fall and spring) an Art Major will enroll in six credits of Art classes. Therefore, students who are planning to transfer to a university with an art emphasis will need to take 24 semester hours of core Art classes and 36 hours of required general education courses in order to transfer as a junior.

It is up to the individual University/College to accept and/or transfer credits.

Three of the general education credits must be in the Humanities. The Art Major may claim as one of his/her two art history classes as the three hours of the humanities requirements.
