Studio Art Core


effective spring semester 2017

The Studio Art Core serves as the backbone of the Studio Art BFA and Interdisciplinary Art & Design AB degrees. Built upon core principles necessary for all studio art practices, it creates a shared culture of dialogue and interdisciplinary practice across all areas and studio practices within the School.


The sculpture area is an environment that encourages exploration. The undergraduate course of study allows students to develop conceptual and technical understanding in the three-dimensional arts. Sculpture courses introduce both contemporary and traditional practices in the discipline. Students are encouraged to investigate issues of object-making, as well as installations and public art interventions.

The Graphic Design area in the Lamar Dodd School of Art prepares students to communicate ideas and experiences by integrating visual and textual content across various media.



Students will gain experience in a variety of different media including: time-based forms, digital video, computer and web-based art, digital photography, robotics, sound, performance, durational installation and computer-operated fabrication.

Art Education

The Art Education program at the University of Georgia is grounded in critical, experiential, and interdisciplinary inquiry. Faculty and students benefit from close proximity to the Georgia Museum of Art, partnerships with schools and community organizations in diverse settings, and the expertise of renowned studio and art history faculty within the School of Art. As a community of art educators we explore the intersections of contemporary art, histories of art education, visual culture, service-learning, social justice, and digital technology.

Art History


Undergraduates majoring in the History of Art are introduced to visual objects across a wide range of media, cultures and periods.

Coursework in this area stresses the relationship between art and its historical context, while at the same time developing the critical and rhetorical skills necessary for graduate work in the field.
