About

As an Art major at Connecticut College, you embark on a journey of visual investigation to develop your technical expertise and visual communication skills.

Overview

The journey starts with courses in design and foundation-level drawing and culminates in the ideas and concepts you express in the Senior Thesis Exhibition. The Connecticut College faculty are dedicated teachers and active artists. They expose you to a variety of artistic philosophies and professional practices. You can experiment or concentrate in a broad range of studio disciplines including ceramics, graphic design, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.

Facilities

Cummings Arts Center has generous studios, darkrooms, computer laboratories and galleries supporting diverse disciplines. We also have newly renovated studios in sculpture, ceramics and printmaking and a new white-box gallery for student exhibitions and special projects. As a Art senior, you have a studio that is yours 24 hours a day, seven days a week for your thesis project.

Special opportunities

Opportunities for collaboration abound. For example, professors Pamela Marks (art) and Marc Zimmer (chemistry) collaborated with art major Julia McGinley '14 to develop illustrations for a children's book on bioluminescence. And art professors Andrea Wollensak and Denise Pelletier collaborated with the computer science and botany departments to create courses investigating common themes and concepts. The Arboretum, greenhouse and Caroline Black Garden were the locus for the investigations.
