I always felt right at home at Curry. The small class sizes and the opportunity to build connections with the faculty members were other reasons that helped me choose Curry. I made incredible friendships and great connections with faculty members, inside and outside of the Psychology department.

Studio Arts Curriculum

The educational goal of the Studio Arts major is to balance the development of artistic sensibility and technical proficiency. This balance is promoted through coursework and personal interaction with faculty of high professional caliber in the arts and design.

Graduates of the Studio Arts major at Curry are employed in a variety of fields, many of which expand the traditional role of
the artist and designer. The faculty strongly advises students to seek internships while enrolled in the program.

Arts faculty and the Center for Career Development are able to advise students on internship opportunities at galleries, museums, educational institutions, and other settings where studio arts training is central. Various businesses and institutions offer professional mentoring in design as well as related fields such as arts administration, art therapy, publishing, and art education.

Prospective first year students should enroll in FA 1000 and VA 1770 in their first semester. Upper class students declaring
the major should complete these classes as soon as possible. Students with previous study in the arts are encouraged to contact a member of the Studio Arts faculty to discuss a plan of study that acknowledges abilities gained prior to entering the College.

Studio arts classes include: art, drawing, painting, photography, computer art, sculpture, ceramics and much more.

Meet Nikki Graves '06 - The Rockport Group

"When we do the reviews for the shoes, I always think back to sitting in studio class at Curry, where we'd critique everyone's art pieces...One of my professors, Laurie Alpert, would always say that critiques are not something to be taken personally. In fact they help you progress and make something good, even better." - Nikki Graves '06, Global Quality Assurance Specialist, The Rockport Group.
