Designed for fluidity, the Studio Art major allows you to experiment with a variety of mediums, develop your artistic voice, and pursue the artistic avenues best-suited to your creative gifts. You can explore every medium imaginable, from casting and wood to screen printing and pottery.
In addition to studying and practicing art, you’ll be introduced to the world of art exhibitions, galleries, and commissions as you share your artwork outside the studio. Studio Art majors refine their artistic skills and develop their personal style, while learning the ins and outs of the art world from practicing artists.
Our core art courses build a solid foundation in the main branches of visual art, examining both contemporary art strategies and art history. You will explore 2D and 3D art mediums, choosing electives in printmaking, painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, and ceramics.
Students pursuing Studio Art degrees spend their senior year creating a body of work that will be displayed in the Modelle Metcalf gallery on campus. Throughout your time at Taylor, you will have opportunities to sell your work, gain commissions, and win awards.
