The Minor in Fine Arts can enhance anyone's education and provide a basis for a lifetime of engagement with the arts.
The Fine Arts minor offers students the chance to intensively study their chosen art form, providing the opportunity to expand their creative arts education. This 15-credit minor consists of one required course in studio drawing, followed by a required introductory classes in either painting, printmaking, ceramics or sculpture.
Students can engage in all of these artistic styles or choose to focus their remaining credits on the form that suits their interests. Elective courses in the Fine Arts minor are tailored to specific elements of the medium, including wood and stone carving, landscape painting and intaglio techniques.
This highly structured and advanced level course explores non-objective, abstract
painting and aims to expand and refine the numerous painting styles at each student's command. Techniques covered range from monochrome painting, to
stripes, to use of the grid, and abstract mark making. Final projects are individually designed by the student in consultation with the instructor.
This course focuses on the creation and examination of assemblage
sculpture and site-specific installation, using man-made
objects and found materials. Class discussions will enable students to critically approach sculpture in terms of the psychology and aesthetics of
found objects and natural materials, incorporating a sense of regarding place,
history, and personal story into their work.
