Art & the History of Art

Whether you’re interested in making art or learning about its history, our challenging curriculum and supportive faculty can help you discover your artistic path.

Spring 2020 Classes and Flexible Grading Options

All classes during the spring 2020 semester will be treated as though the flexible grading option (FGO) had been elected. The FGO enables students to decide whether or not to keep a grade they earned in a course after the grade is posted, or in the case of any passing grade, to elect to receive a (“P”). 

We offer introductory to advanced courses in art history and studio practice that enable our students to develop artistic awareness, historical understanding, critical faculties and practice in the visual arts.
