Within a professional studio environment, students explore a variety of fundamental artistic processes. All art majors work to build a balanced portfolio, acceptable for admission to the nation's top art colleges. Upon entering the program, students take foundation courses designed specifically for magnet students that cover in-depth investigations in studio problems, as well as aesthetics, criticism, and history. Students explore contemporary trends in the building of their portfolios, which include examples of drawings, paintings, print-making, creative film making, photography, graphic design, ceramics and sculpture. A broad visual arts education is stressed, at the same time that growth of the individual's specific interests are encouraged.
