Studio art includes studies in the traditional areas of the visual arts, as well as in contemporary concerns and techniques. Students are introduced to the skills of critical analysis of works of art and to a variety of media and approaches to their use. In addition, the discipline supports co-curricular activities, including the UMM Student Art Club, student exhibitions, and guest speakers. Objectives--The goal of the studio art curriculum is to introduce students to the technical, conceptual, and communication skills necessary for activities in the visual arts and to help students understand the major traditions and the cultural significance of the visual arts. Studio courses serve the needs of students planning to pursue graduate studies in art, students interested in exploring their own creative potential as part of their general education, and students preparing for secondary school teaching.
