Art Studio

Art Studio

In Art Studio, students learn basic elements and principles of 2D and 3D design and mixed media as well as drawing and painting. The art curriculum exposes students to diverse cultures and aesthetic expression and encourages students to use their skills to experiment with media and techniques to develop an expansive and expressive visual language. Highly qualified faculty with degrees in art studio, who create and exhibit their own work regularly, lead students in developing their art-making skills and techniques and encourage students to explore these art processes to create their own unique style and approach.

Students exhibit their work throughout the semester in the Dwight V. Dowley Gallery around the classical Rotunda at Chestnut Hill College and may choose to participate in the SEPCHE Honors Program Exhibition hosted by member colleges each spring. In addition to offering its own self-standing Art Studio major, the College has embarked on a partnership with Studio Incamminati, School for Contemporary Realist Art founded by the world renowned artist Nelson Shanks (Studio Incamminati)

For information about the Art Studio major, please contact Margaret Thompson, SSJ, M.F.A., M.A., Associate Professor of Art, mthompson@chc.edu
