Fine Art Introduction

A Note from the Chair

kristi-b_wCreative 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.
