Drawing serves to undergird the work of the majors in all eight emphasis areas in the department.
Many emphasis areas provide upper-level BFA students with individual or group studios in the Calder Art Center. When compared to other programs that focus on undergraduate education, the department is rare in offering these to its majors. Combining the benefits of an individual workspace with the opportunity for communication between faculty and peers, the studios extend learning beyond the classroom.
