Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs of Study

The B.F.A. in Studio Art at Endicott College offers a two-dimensional concentration in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking. Our studio curriculum within this track addresses technical and material means of visual expression while also focusing on issues inherent in developing a cohesive vision and voice with the student’s chosen medium. We encourage a spirit of search, critical thinking and creative discipline on the part of each student. Our goal as a faculty is to enable students to go beyond mere competencies within one media but to also enable the student to develop an artistic voice. Our courses explore a wide range of media, building formal, technical, and conceptual skills while supporting research and creative inquiry. The quality of the faculty-student interaction enables students to fully experience what it means to be an artist and painter while establishing distinctive, original, and personal forms of expression.

The student in the 2D track develops a personal body of work that can be used for application to graduate school or to gain employment in a variety of art related fields such as curator, arts administrator in a museum or arts council, gallery owner, illustrator, educator and professional artist.
