Overview

Art Practice s programs at Portland State University are designed to develop the student's creative faculties, a sense of critical judgment, and fundamental skills and techniques. In each of the concentrations within the art major, the principal and supporting courses have one general purpose: to instill a mature, professional attitude toward the process of artistic creation and expression.

Students enrolled in the School of Art and Design acquire:

  • Knowledge and experience of the creative problem solving processes.
  • Knowledge of discipline-specific skills and vocabulary.
  • Knowledge of art history and design.
  • Knowledge of critical theories in art.
  • Knowledge and experience to formulate a cumulative body of work in their discipline.

Programme Structure

  • The first and second year focuses on foundation courses including art history, drawing, art theory and design. 
  • During the second year students are encouraged to sample a variety of courses in printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, mixed media and art and social practice. 
  • In the third and fourth years students have an opportunity to select their own combination of interdisciplinary classes or to focus on a specific area of interest. 
  • In either case they will develop their knowledge of visual language, media skills and the conceptual and expressive aspects of their work. Critical theory and professional practice in art are investigated to aid the student in establishing a context within the contemporary arts community.
