2D (Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking)


The Two-Dimensional (2D) Studio Art concentration builds from perceptual studies in the foundations of traditional observational drawing and design toward exploration of contemporary image-making. 

As you discover and develop your role as an artist, through a Christian perspective, your voice will begin to emerge. Comprehensive investigation of concept, experimentation with techniques and media encourages connections within the global context of visual art.  

You will learn to communicate on a wie range of topics as a contemporary image-maker by blurring the lines between media. You will be immersed in diverse courses and paired with 3D students at advanced levels so you can interact with even more media, concept, and dialogue. This collaboration provides a rich diversity within the studio and provides you with a uniquely responsive program of study.

Courses Include:

  • Observational Drawing and Painting
  • The Interpretive Figure
  • Techniques in Printmaking
  • Experimental Printmaking
  • Artistic Book & Papermaking
  • Non-Representational Expression
  • Experimental Media
  • Advanced topics in Studio
