Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art
Earning a Bachelor’s in Studio Arts from Limestone College provides a solid foundation for real-world practices and graduate school preparation. Studio Art majors develop technical skills and their personal vision allowing them to find creative solutions to problems and further their dedication to art-making. Students may also elect to major in Studio Art with a concentration in Graphic Design. Non-majors have the opportunity to minor in Art.
The department allows yearly professional experience and exposure through the Juried Student Exhibition and our fine arts publication The Candelabra. Faculty strive to offer moments for advancement including topic-specific field trips, guest artist talks, museum visits, national conference attendance, art sales, etc. Students learn the “in’s and out’s” of professional exhibition conduct through creating art, planning and hanging exhibitions, designing marketing for the promotion of their exhibits, giving an artist talk during their reception and at the Student Research Symposium, as well as practicing writing within the discipline. The capstone course, Senior Seminar, prepares each student for his/her own exhibition, as well as completion of a professional portfolio to enter into the marketplace.
