The studio art program emphasizes art-making as a form of creative inquiry and research taking place within a broad historical and cultural context. With a curriculum aimed at the development of visual skills, creative and critical reasoning, and comprehension of historical and contemporary contexts, the program prepares its students for a diversity of careers and graduate study in art. Students may take courses in Drawing, Design, Sculpture, Ceramics, Painting, Printmaking, Photography, New Media, and Film. While classes are generally taught with these mediums as a framework, the overall curriculum supports interdisciplinary understandings and approaches. With class enrollments limited to 15 and a dedicated and diverse faculty comprised of distinguished, practicing artists, the studio art program offers each student dynamic and meaningful learning opportunities within UVM’s broad, liberal educational context.
