Rooted in theory and fostered by technology, the Art, Design, and Interactive Multimedia (ADIM) program prepares students to be conceptual, visual thinkers. The Fine and Digital Arts concentration has a two-fold mission; to teach fine arts as a component of a liberal arts education and to offer majors a deeper knowledge of their discipline while providing a foundation for future study.
Through studio art courses students develop a personal approach to art media, gain knowledge of materials and techniques, and work to strengthen their creative skills. The ability to innovate, solve problems, and present ideas is important not only to the arts, but to all disciplines. ADIM majors develop a greater understanding of the art world and gain a deeper insight into the role of art in our daily lives and culture.
Learning Outcomes Include:
- Execute technical, aesthetic, and conceptual decisions based on an understanding of art and design principles
- Communicate effectively as professional artists/designers and connect with their audience using visual, oral, and written presentation skills relevant to their field
- Solve multifaceted design problems through the application of design concepts and theories
