Foundations - Art Education and Studio Art
In your first year, you’ll focus on foundation courses that introduce you to technical and conceptual approaches to the visual arts. The six core courses emphasize drawing, design, and problem-solving skills. This shared curriculum provides students with the conceptual, technical, and critical skills necessary for later studio work.
The Foundations program is when the technical and conceptual skills needed for students success are provided. Besides the required coursework, students become aware of the possibilities within art and design making and the various emphasis areas within the Studio Art program. The solid, six-course program, is an essential framework as students decide on their emphasis in the end of their first-year.
The comprehensive foundations program has several dedicated classrooms spread throughout the art building. This ensures that individual students have access to the tools necessary for projects regardless of whether one is creating 3-dimensional work, handwork and drawings, or computer-based projects.
