Art Studio

The Art Studio program delivers a broad range of hands-on studio practices to the art minor. Areas of focus include painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, ceramics, printmaking and time-based media. Course choices/sequences are determined by the student according to minor requirements. Students are encouraged to explore different areas of focus and are expected to take advantage of beginning classes that provide a critical introduction to the research possibilities within studio art.

In addition to studio classes, students are encouraged to participate in the department’s distinguished visiting artist lecture series, professional practice seminars, student exhibitions/competitions and internships. They benefit from exposure to cultural events and exhibitions in Davis, Sacramento and the Greater Bay Area.
