Art Department

The Art Department is currently updating it’s curriculum and structure to support enhanced exploratory, cross-disciplinary practice. Details will be announced in early 2014, and the new program will launch in Fall 2014.

Students should refer to the model program that was in effect for the year and term of their entrance to Cornish. View archived catalogs and model programs.

Art Model Program 2013 – 2014

The curriculum presented below follows a generalized model, but each student’s program will be individualized based on placement testing, transfer credits and individual progress as the student advances. All art students take 67 studio credit hours in area studios chosen from Painting, Photography, Print Art, Sculpture & Related Genres, Video/Media Arts, Drawing and Core Studio Concepts.
