Art
Department

The department offers majors or correlates in art history and studio art. Enriched by a comprehensive college art museum, both majors culminate in a one-semester senior thesis or independent studio project. Art 105-106 (Introduction to the History of Art)—required for majors and encouraged for all Vassar students—opens with monuments of the ancient world and ends with today’s global video as professors in the department present their areas of special expertise. Upper level courses offer work in architectural and museum studies as well as art history and criticism. Academic credits may also be earned through study abroad and field work or internships in the New York museums, galleries, and auction houses. Art 102-103 (Drawing I), the introductory studio course, opens the way for students with a range of drawing experience to advanced classes in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, color, computer animation and video. An architecture sequence of introductory, intermediate, and advanced drawing and design classes is also offered.
