Art Studio Courses Or Digitally Based Arts? TU Offers You Real Choices

Arts Administration-Visual Arts

Are you interested in formal art studio training, or is digitally based visual communication your creative outlet?  Or, are you interested in combining the two areas?  The Visual Arts Concentration provides you first with a solid background in studio and art history.  We then use a global thematic approach to help develop your personal vocabulary and interpretive skills, helping you to utilize these in contemporary applications and discover your own personal voice.

Real Resources:  The Diane Kidd Gallery

TU students also have the advantage of having a real art gallery located right on campus – The Diane Kidd Gallery.  Our students have the opportunity for a formal gallery showing before they graduate from college! Each year, a Student Show highlights the best and brightest of the artworks created by our students in this distinctive gallery setting. 

Studio and art history courses will use a global thematic approach to develop the student’s vocabulary and interpretive skills with an emphasis on contemporary applications and interpretations. Visual applications will originate from either formal art studio courses or digitally based visual communication courses, or a combination of the two areas.
