Studio Art

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Art is a professional degree concentration with a focus on an innovative curriculum in art education, art history, and studio art. Students are introduced to the rewards of artistic practice while studying in any of the areas. All are supported by a strong foundation of visual art and general studies. This degree is intended to prepare students to pursue a professional career as an art educator or as a studio artist.

Studio Art - BFA

The Bachelor of Art (BFA) in Studio Art combines strong curriculum requirements in design, drawing, and studio (either two- or three-dimensional). Students will develop skills and aesthetic judgment in the materials, techniques and tools within drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, or photography studio arts.

Art History studies will engage students in historic and contemporary artists, art movements and styles. The degree culminates in a senior exhibition in CMU's downtown Grand Junction art gallery, and upon graduation students are prepared to pursue a career as an artisan or continue with graduate studies in art.
