The Two-Dimensional Studio program provides a solid foundation in two-dimensional art, including drawing, painting, printmaking, and advanced level courses in a variety of media.
Constructive criticism is an integral part of classroom discussion to help each artist more fully realize his or her creative potential. Discussions of all aspects of art, from generating ideas to the technical processes are included in instruction and practice. References to art history and contemporary art are integrated into every class. Field trips and collaborative projects will heighten student awareness and appreciation of art.
Each course has two main components: studio work, and sketchbook practice. Both should demonstrate an exploration in which reflection and research lead to experimentation and successful artistic production.
