The studio program offers classes in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and printmaking. The introductory course, Art 102-03, involves both the conceptual and material aspects of art making. It introduces the practices of the artist and the creative process and does not teach technique in a formulaic manner but, rather, emphasizes ways of seeing and conceptualizing the processes entailed in making art. This course is suited to students with a range of drawing experience, from beginners to advanced, and is the pre- or co-requisite for the intermediate studio courses. The aim of the studio courses is to impart modes of thinking and problem solving, relevant to a variety to intellectual undertakings, through the production of works of art.
