Fine Art Introduction

A Note from the Chair

Creative problem solving holds the key to the future generation of thinkers.  Watkins’ Fine Art Students are encouraged to be active thinkers from their first day on campus.  A visual immersion into various techniques and mediums, plus a strong dedication to theory and cultural issues, allow our students to consider what is the role of art in the future.  Watkins provides a nurturing environment to test these considerations as faculty work closely with students within small classroom structures.  Through involvement in the community, internships and research-based BFA exhibitions, our students graduate with unique and marketable skills.
