Creativity and problem solving are the building blocks for innovation and new ideas. A studio art minor not only explores a range of materials and media, but also helps you to learn how to think about your research, your clients, your business, or your subject matter in new and creative ways. Within a range of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional studio art courses, you’ll learn how to problem solve and rearrange variables, to develop a broad training in creative thinking, in a hands-on manner. In addition to this, study of contemporary and historic art events will provide inspiration and context within the field of visual arts.
