Department of Studio Art

The studio art curriculum is designed to heighten and develop the student's awareness of his/her own aesthetic identity. In studio art courses, students identify and resolve visual problems through intuitive and analytical decision making while dealing with the consequences of those decisions through the resolution of a specific problem. Most studio courses meet for approximately four contact hours per week, allowing for personal and individual interaction between student and instructor as well as the establishment of a forum for the discussion and evolution of ideas.

We invite you to explore the individual web pages to learn more about the department at the College of Charleston.
