Students exploring creativity in traditional and non-traditional media
The Studio Arts curriculum at Prescott College includes the practices of painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, and public art, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches and new genres. We provide a course of study that fosters the development of students' individual passions, with an emphasis on concept and innovation, critical thinking skills, current art theory and practice, and visual and cultural literacy. Students are expected to develop a strong artistic voice based upon an understanding of contemporary art-critical practices as well as an in-depth understanding of the technical skills needed to create compelling contemporary art. Field trips allow students to experience art firsthand at museums, galleries, artists’ studios, and site-specific works. Professional development course encourage the skills and habits to allow students to establish a unique, self-directed studio practice The mission of the Studio Arts is to cultivate a student's growth into working artists with an understanding of the professional art world that will prepare them for advanced study in studio art, careers in museums and galleries, positions as critics and theorists, and as professional studio artists.
