Studio Art

Studio Art

The studio art major is designed for the student who intends to pursue the creation of visual art as a profession. The program prepares you for graduate school as well as employment in the field. You’ll gain practical and creative experience through interactions with professional artists in a variety of settings. You’ll be involved in Meredith’s exhibition program. Above all, you’ll learn to make art that matters. 


The studio art program offers individualized instruction that helps students mature artistically and discover their personal style and preferred media. Students learn to function creatively through a variety of experiences designed to help them gain an understanding of the artistic process and human culture. In addition to cultivating students’ artistic skills, the program instructs them on the basic business practices, legal rights and procedures, and presentation and marketing methods that lead artists to professional success.

Nora Butkovich Grad school scholarship winner Nora Butkovich says Meredith prepared her for the next step toward her art career.
