Studio Arts

Studio Arts ia a concentration of the Visual Arts major

Students who pursue a Concentration in Studio Arts have the opportunity to experience upper level classes as their major electives. They may take a variety of classes or choose to focus in a specific area. A student with a particular strength and interest in two dimensional media may choose classes, such as advanced painting, drawing, photography, or printmaking.

However, the student with a passion in the three dimensional arts may focus on sculpture or ceramics. There are also a variety of Art History offerings from which students can choose. The Visual Arts faculty have a close, working relationship with students and encourage them to develop their individual ideas while pushing the boundaries of their media. Students are encouraged to exhibit their work in the Spring Student Art Exhibit.

Meet Peter Machen '10

"As a first-year student, it's important to take some time to figure out what you want to do at Curry. The key is to concentrate on what makes you happy, and once you figure it out, pursue it relentlessly," suggests Visual Arts alum, Peter Machen.
