What will I learn?

How do you see the world? Study how art, architecture, and media technologies have shaped our understanding of culture throughout time. Studio art classes are complemented by unique academic courses. When you don’t have a brush or pencil in your hand, you’ll be involved in events, exhibitions, and workshops where you can learn through experience.
