Studio Art majors and minors from Washington and Jefferson College develop their creativity and talent by making art in a dynamic environment. In courses like 2D and 3D Design, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, and painting, students learn the language, elements, media, tools, and principles of the craft, and hone their skills in W&J’s well-equipped studios.


In the Studio Art major or minor, you will hone your creative thinking skills and work on your visual expression through a series of studio courses, beginning with foundations in drawing and design. As you progress through the program, you’ll complete studio work in ceramics, sculpture and painting. Studio Art majors finish their experience at Washington and Jefferson College with a senior art show in the Olin Fine Art Gallery.

Careers After W&J

You’ll find W&J art majors practicing their craft in settings that range from teaching in their own classrooms or producing in their own studios to earning recognition for their work on the national stage. Chicago-based artist Tony Lewis ’08 has been nationally recognized for his abstract work in graphite.
