Studio Art

Ripon College offers a major and minor in studio art. The department provides an engaged and personalized learning environment that prepares students to live in a diverse and complex visual world. The curriculum gives students the fundamental concepts, skills, methods, history and contemporary practice of image-making that result in an independent, senior capstone project. Art majors participate in the creative process as it is understood in the visual arts to the point where they can assume a critical standpoint and interact with the art world after graduation, whether producing visual art, preparing for further education, writing and research, working in arts institutions, art therapy or art education, or assuming a lifetime attitude of art appreciation.
