The major in studio art incorporates a comprehensive exploration into studio art practices. Students learn formally, conceptually, and technically how to create art through the various disciplines of ceramic, drawing, digital art, glass, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
For a B.A. in studio art, the student must fulfill all general requirements as described in the liberal arts curriculum including those of the Newcomb-Tulane College core. In addition, the B.A. in studio art program requires a total of 39 credits. The B.A. requires 30 credits in studio courses including three courses from among six in the Foundations of Art Series. (If two foundations courses are taken in two-dimensional areas, the third must be taken in a three-dimensional area or vice-versa.) Also required are ARST 1050 Beginning Drawing I (3 c.h.) and ARST 1060 Beginning Drawing II (3 c.h.). Of the remaining studio credits, at least 9 credits must be in one area beyond the 1000-level, three credits may be in any other studio area above the 1000-level, and the remaining three must be fulfilled with the department capstone course (ARST 4930 Senior Capstone Studio (3 c.h.) offered only in the spring semester). Also 3 courses in art history are required, these include ARHS 1010 Art Survey I: Prehist-Mid Ages (3 c.h.) and ARHS 1020 Art Sur II: Renaiss to Present (3 c.h.), and one additional course which must be a contemporary or modern art history course, 19th century - present. No more than half of required studio and art history courses can be transferred into the degree program.
