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.

'Absence and Presence: A Printmaking Response to the Bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street'

The Curry College Fine and Applied Arts department is proud to bring 'Absence and Presence: A Printmaking Response to the Bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street' to the Curry campus.  The second of two fall exhibits (prints 26-50) will run November 2 - December 20 and will be displayed in the Hoon Keith Quiet Study Lounge Gallery in the Student Center.

Fine Arts students participate in service project inspired by "Absence and Presence"

As a part of their senior seminar class, fine arts students were tasked with creating a set of bookmarks inspired by "Absence and Presence" art exhibit.  The exhibit was created in response to the 2007 terrorist car bombing in the literary district of al-Mutanabbi Street of Baghdad, Iraq.  Students then dispersed their works out into the community.
