Studio Art Courses

Studio Art courses (ART) teach you to create your own works of art. We offer courses in architecture, ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.

You can fulfill some COLL curriculum requirements with studio art courses. Some of these courses may require a prerequisite. Most of them fulfill the Creative and Performing Arts Proficiency requirement and Arts, Letters, and Values Knowledge Domain requirement.

Where to Start

Many of our advanced courses require ART 211 (Drawing and Color) or ART 212 (Three-dimensional Design: Form and Space) as prerequisites.

In order to put your work in context, you are required to take a total of three Art History courses (ARTH). Two of the Art History courses must be at or above ARTH 230, and one at or above 330.

The Undergraduate Catalog lists all the courses we offer. To see which classes are coming up next semester, or to see what topics will be taught in a topics course, check out the Dynamic Schedule or Open Course List.
