The purpose of the art program is (1) to acquaint students with the fundamental elements and principles of the visual arts and their use in either studio or visual communication arts; (2) to provide opportunities for the student to develop skill in the use of various traditional and experimental forms of studio practice and current technological media, and the ability to apply them to art-making that engages contemporary culture and aesthetic concepts; (3) to provide opportunities for students to develop a knowledge of the historical development and cultural context of art and the capacity to think critically; and (4) to assist students in their exploration of the spiritual nature of art as an expression of their faith. The curriculum provides training in studio arts or visual communication that prepares students to pursue advanced study or begin work professionally.
Admission to the Major or Minor
Formal application for admission to a major or minor in art should be made upon completion of the specified freshman drawing and design course sequences (see below). In the case of a transfer student with class status beyond the sophomore level, application to the studio art or visual communication art major or art minor can be made after confirmation of successful completion of equivalent drawing and design course sequences. At the time of application the student must (1) designate her or his intention to pursue studies in either studio arts or visual communication, or as an art minor in studio arts; (2) submit a portfolio for review; (3) must have a minimum 2.5 GPA in art courses; and (4) must have completed three of the designed foundational courses. All studio art majors, as a condition of graduation, are required to participate in a Senior Exhibition during Spring Quarter of their senior year. All senior visual communication majors, as a condition of graduation, are required to participate during Spring Quarter of their senior year in the Visual Communication Portfolio Exhibition. Senior art majors must also, as a condition of graduation, provide the Art Department with a comprehensive photographic portfolio of work completed during their studies. The images will be retained by the Art Department as part of the department image bank.
