Art Practice curriculum at University of California, Berkeley provides technical and conceptual training, and develops critical understandings across a broad range of media and disciplines, including : painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture (wood, metal, ceramics, and mixed media), photography, installation, performance art, video, animation, sound, and in the newly emerged fields of programming, interactivity, game design, and AR/VR. Art Majors are expected to round out the required studio courses with Art History and Theory classes.
Art Practice students are deeply engaged with their art forms, rigorously committed to their craft, and highly capable of invigorating conceptual, technical, and critical creative research. Students gain direct experience with a broad range of arts professionals and display spaces, through in-person meetings with artists and curators, and through gallery and museum visits. The department graduates students with potential for significant artistic and cultural impact, with many pursuing careers as professional artists, designers, and teachers, or in arts-related activities with museums, galleries, arts management, publishing, and artists’ organizations.
