Minor in Studio Art

The minor in Studio Art introduces students to the techniques and methods of art and provides an understanding of the creative process. These studio courses, in combination with an Art History course, give students a greater familiarity with cultural background in art. Since the program encompasses the basic courses, students can elect to explore art in advanced courses.
