Studio Art

Experiment with Visual Media 

Canisius offers a studio art minor and all courses are designed to improve students' conceptual, formal and technical art making skills.  Students will also develop a formal portfolio under the direction of working professional artists. The Studio Art program offers excellent preparation for advanced study in art, and is also open to students looking to experiment in visual media.

By graduation, studio art minors will have the knowledge, experience, and portfolio to continue for a BFA as well as for some graduate programs with an art studio component.
