Studio Art

Human beings are an intensely creative species. As such, they have always found expression—have always conceived of themselves and their world—through art. Studio art majors at Lakeland both study and contribute to this history of human creativity.

Studio art majors at Lakeland University develop their creative potential through the process of building a portfolio for either a marketable career in art, placement in a graduate program, or enriching their lives with a rewarding means of visual expression. In addition to hands-on coursework in a wide variety of disciplines, studio art majors also gain practical experience through internships in the field and exhibiting their art in the Bradley Art Gallery in the Annual Student Art Exhibition and in their capstone Senior Exhibit.

Students who have successfully completed a B.A. in Studio Art from Lakeland University should be able to:

  • Competently use a broad range of media and art tools in a variety of art disciplines.
  • Skillfully compose the elements of art including line, shape, value, texture, color and space into an organized and unified whole.
  • Demonstrate a creative and original approach in solving artistic problems.
  • Communicate effectively through visual, verbal and written means.
  • Present their artwork in a professional manner.
  • Consistently practice good working habits including the efficient and disciplined use of time and the meeting of deadlines.
