Studio Arts

Three students painting in Studio Arts course

Studio Arts is a subset of courses under the VAPA major. Studio Arts courses enable students to explore and learn a variety of visual art practices. Our faculty members foster critical thinking. This fuels the imagination and innovation needed to excel in any creative profession.

Along with new art-making techniques, you will engage with creative problem solving as it relates to visual design. You will gain critical thinking skills that will benefit your academic journey outside of the studio.

Expand on your creative interests - no matter your current skill level! Our intimate class sizes allow for one-on-one instruction with our dedicated faculty of professional artists. As a community of artists, we learn together in the classroom. We also take advantage of the museums and galleries in the area, visiting current exhibitions together.
