School of Art
Program in Art
A forum for the sustained exploration of possibilities in cultural production, the Program in Art pushes students to question conventional ideas about contemporary art. It challenges every artist to develop a critical self-awareness about his or her own work and better understand the issues and contexts that inform artmaking in today's world.
Encompassing both studio practice and theory, the Program in Art offers instruction in a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, digital imaging, sculpture, installation, video, film, writing and performance. The program does not require students to concentrate on a particular medium; instead, it relies on a flexible structure of individualized instruction and mentoring to emphasize the articulation of ideas, the development of working methodologies and the realization of independent studio work.
