About

The Art BFA track at California Institute of the Arts CalArts provides solid training in both critical thinking and artistic process, preparing students to be historically grounded thinkers while providing the tools necessary to develop a unique art practice.

Overview

We offer a bachelor degree in Art at the California Institute of the Arts CalArts. The curriculum begins with a series of courses in which students investigate various media, art-historical traditions and theoretical positions, providing a strong foundation to individualized studio practice. 

Key Features

  • Additional coursework includes a combination of seminars, group critique classes and independent studies. With the guidance of faculty mentors, students can concentrate on those areas that best serve their personal goals. 
  • By the third year in residence, undergraduates are expected to pursue independent studio projects. Beginning undergraduates share studios while most upper-level undergraduates work in individual studios.

Programme Structure

  • Encompassing both studio practice and theory, a primary concern of the Art Program is that every artist be challenged to develop a critical self-awareness about their work and to better understand the aesthetic, social and intellectual contexts that inform artmaking in today's globalized world.
  • Both the undergraduate and graduate tracks offer instruction in a wide range of media, including installation, video, film, writing, performance, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, digital imaging and sculpture.
