Tusculum University students who choose the Studio Art concentration first are grounded in foundation level courses.

These courses teach the language and techniques of studio art. Students progress through the beginning, intermediate and then advanced levels of studio courses.

Our studio course structure is designed to first expose students to the fundamentals of working with a particular medium such as oil paint. Then in upper level courses, students improve their command of art and increase their ability to use a medium by learning more advanced techniques and developing higher levels of skill, as well as the ability to conceptualize and develop a unified body of work.

Students interested in Art Education K-12 should strongly consider the four-year Studio Art B.A., followed by a concentrated 16-month Master of Art in Teaching (M.A.T.) program to obtain teacher preparation and licensure.

A minor in Art and Design – Studio Art is an option for Tusculum students. The minor consists of 17 to 18 hours of coursework.
