BFA - Native American Art (Art Studio)

Bachelor of Fine Arts - Native American Art (Art Studio)

Develop your creative and critical thinking skills by combining courses in Art Studio and Native American Studies, which also provides context for your individual voice as a contemporary artist.

Studio courses introduce diverse materials and technical skills, as well as traditional and emerging areas, that include:

  • drawing
  • digital fabrication
  • electronic art
  • installation and performance art
  • painting
  • photography
  • printmaking
  • sculpture
  • video and media art

The Native American Studies courses encourage the use of different creative traditions within your studio practice. They also provide an in-depth engagement with Aboriginal issues in contemporary art.

As a senior student, develop your own artistic direction with support from an art studio professor of your choice, who works one-on-one with you. In addition, you have your own studio space, where you have the freedom to experiment.
