The major in Studio Art involves a comprehensive exploration into studio art practices. Students learn a variety of formal, technical, and conceptual approaches to making art within the disciplines of ceramics, drawing and painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, glass, and printmaking.
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. Thirty of these credits are in Studio Art Courses and the remaining nine are taken in Art History.The thirty Studio Art credits include three courses taken among the six Foundations of Art offerings. (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 of concentration beyond the 1000-level, and three credits may be in any Studio area above the 1000-level. Finally, the Studio Art major takes the department Capstone course (ARST 4930 Senior Capstone Studio (3 c.h.) offered in the spring semester). Art History requirements include ARHS 1010 Art Survey I: Prehistory through the Middle Ages (3 c.h.) and ARHS 1020 Art Survey II: Renaissance to the Present (3 c.h.). The remaining Art History course must be in a contemporary or modern Art History course, with course content consisting of artwork made any time during the 19th century to the present. No more than half of required studio and art history courses can be transferred into the degree program.
