Saint Louis University's 21-credit studio art minor is offered both at the Madrid and St. Louis campuses.
The minor includes Foundational Experience in Drawing and 2D Design, plus a course in a three-dimensional medium: 3D Design, Ceramics I, Sculpture I or Fibers and Textiles. Studio art minors are also required to take an art history course, choosing from a variety of cultural and historical topics.
These four courses provide an opportunity for students to gain skills in observational drawing and visual organization in two and three dimensions, as well as an understanding of aesthetics, theory and context for art-making.
Building on this, studio art minors take a further nine credit of studio art exploration courses. Students may work broadly, taking courses in multiple media at the introductory or intermediate level, or in-depth, taking a sequence of courses in one media.
Select a course in a three-dimensional medium from the following courses:
Three Dimensional Design
Fibers and Textiles
