Why Studio Art at Stetson University?
Studio Art gives students the opportunity to develop artistic skills with the benefits of a liberal arts education. They receive personalized attention, professional critiques and guidance from faculty who are professional artists themselves with a range of talents and professional experience. Our faculty chooses to practice their craft at Stetson because they value working one-on-one with undergraduate students who share their passion for art.
Students will develop personal styles and direction on a strong foundation in technique, design principles, historical tradition and contemporary artistic theories. Specific strengths in this track include painting, drawing, mixed media, ceramics and sculpture.

"My professors and mentors in the Art Department noted my established skill as an artist and worked with me as an individual to make sure I was excelling and producing pieces to my personal standards. I was also given thematic freedom in my pieces, which I believe is optimal for creative expression."
