Studio Art

Program Overview

The studio art minor enables students to develop their love and talent for art while majoring in another discipline. With instruction in six traditional disciplines – drawing, design, painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography - Canisius students have the freedom to sample or to focus their studies. 

The program will challenge both serious artists and curious novices to develop their ideas, drafting skills and critical abilities with hands-on assignments. Our studio art courses expose students to the fundamentals of the art studio as well as the latest technology including state-of-the-art computer software, printing presses and digital cameras.
