Through close relationships with faculty who are both dedicated teachers and active artists, art students at Connecticut College gain exposure to a variety of artistic philosophies and professional practices in art.
You may experiment or concentrate in a broad range of studio disciplines including ceramics, graphic design, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Studios, darkrooms, computer laboratories and galleries are available to students and all are located in Cummings Arts Center.
Art majors work closely with members of the faculty; advising and refining of their artistic techniques often continues with a mentoring relationship beyond graduation. The College provides art majors with their own studio space with unlimited access. Introductory-level art courses in studio art are open to all students.
