  • Write a personal Artist’s Statement that describes current artistic direction and practice.

  • Prepare and install works of art for a professional-level exhibition.

  • Discuss concepts employed in the creation, analysis, and evaluation of visual art and articulate informed aesthetic judgments about works of visual art.

  • Research and write about the major art movements in Europe and the United States and the artistic traditions of non-Western cultures in historical context.

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the contemporary art world.

  • Discuss the ways in which visual art conveys information, expresses experiences, and affirms personal and social values.

The Fine Arts program offers three major concentrations: Studio Art, Art History, and K-12 Art Education Certification . To prepare for careers working in museums and galleries, or to pursue graduate study in the history of art, students should major in Art History. Students who want to obtain certification as art teachers on the elementary or secondary levels should major in Art Education.
