Why Study Studio Arts at IU Southeast?

The studio concentration offers the student a focused art experience in one specific medium. Artwork from one studio concentration makes up the majority of pieces in their final portfolio.

Why Study Image

The Fine Arts Department offers a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts (B.A.) with a studio concentration. The five studio concentrations are painting, printmaking, ceramics, drawing, and graphic design. Students are accepted into one concentration. The studio concentration offers the student a focused art experience in one specific medium. Artwork from one studio concentration makes up the majority of pieces in their final portfolio.

With the addition of a sixth studio concentration, Studio Arts, Fine Arts intends to appeal to the student who wants a more diverse art experience. With the Studio Arts concentration, students will focus on two studio areas. This diverse background will prepare students to explore career possibilities in galleries and arts organizations, to name a few.

Acceptance into the Studio Arts Concentration

After completing all four Foundation courses and at least three 200 level studio courses, students will be able to seek acceptance into the Studio Arts concentration.
