What People Say...
With a major in fine art, the world around me is continually growing more vivid and expressive than the day before.” —Sharon Shealy (’14)
The professors are concerned with teaching you to foster your own personal art-making process and developing you as a working, independent artist” —Hannah Gillis ('21)
I have learned how to ‘see’ art—not just looking at it, but noticing all the technical details, engaging with a piece mentally and emotionally, understanding why a piece makes me feel a certain way, and having some idea of the artist’s intentions. Now I understand how to see and feel art” —Deja Harris ('20)
