Studio Art Major/Minor

Exploring Your Creative Gifts

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 metal and wood to print 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.

Filling in Your Canvas

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, ceramics, metalworking, and woodworking.

Students pursuing Studio Art degrees spend their senior years creating collections of works that will be displayed in galleries on and off campus. Throughout your time at Taylor, you will have opportunities to sell your work, gain commissions, and win awards.

Minor in Studio Art

Add a Studio Art minor to supplement any degree with an Art concentration. Choose the electives you are interested in and learn the basics of drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, or sculpture. A Studio Art minor is ideal for any student wanting to refine their creative skills. Develop your professional work to support a Professional Writing major, Graphic Art major, or Multimedia Journalism major.
