Studio Art courses at Dartmouth offer students a serious and sustained exploration of the creative processes in visual art. Technical, perceptual and aesthetic issues are addressed in a historical and contemporary context. Classes are structured so that students experience the creative process through a direct and dynamic engagement with visual media.

Interdisciplinary investigations between studio areas and other departments are encouraged. Pedagogy is broad, with equal emphasis on representation and abstraction. Students are expected to develop the discipline with the focus and commitment necessary to achieve excellence.

The areas that make up Studio Art at Dartmouth consist of Architecture, Drawing, Painting, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture. Please visit area pages to learn about classes being taught in that area and see student work.
