At the School of Art + Design, we're dedicated to the development of well-rounded artists who are skilled and knowledgeable in a range of artistic mediums. An interdisciplinary emphasis lies at the heart of the Art + Design experience.
Your immersion in broad, interdisciplinary training begins with the Foundation program, a one-year general curriculum program that all Art + Design majors must complete. The Foundation program provides you a base of training in basic drawing, design, art history, and contemporary issues in the world of art. During this year, you will build a conceptual foundation in visual and verbal language that is universal to all artistic disciplines.
Foundation courses offer:
- Hands-on activities
- Journal writing
- Guided critiques
- Field trips to galleries, museums, and occasionally international expositions
