• The Art Practice program offers production-based courses founded on the concepts, skills and cultural viewpoints that characterize contemporary art practice.  Our goal is to educate students, both majors and minors, in the craft, culture, and theory of current fine art practices to prepare them for successful careers as artists.  The studio program is designed to develop in-depth skills in more than one area of the visual arts.  It emphasizes the expressive potential of an integration of media, often via a cross-disciplinary, interactive path.  Through collaboration and connections with scientists, engineers, and humanities scholars, the program addresses a breadth of topical and artistic concerns central to a vital undergraduate education.

    The Department offers a major and minor in Art Practice.  For more information about the undergraduate Art Practice program contact Linda Crescini, Undergraduate Coordinator.
