Areas of Study
All art major and minor students begin their studies in the Foundations Program where
they explore the core elements that underlie all visual arts. Students develop skills
in drawing, design, and sculpture through the investigation of process and the use
of traditional, time-based, and digital media.
Foundations prepares students for their upper division studio art courses through
the development of
- Creative problem solving
- Critical analysis
- Technical skills
- Conceptual thinking
- A vocabulary of art language
- Knowledge of Art History and Art Theory
The art department's Foundations program is made up of four core classes:
Erin Anfinson, Assistant Prof.
