News & Events
There has never been in time in history when the Fine Arts offered more opportunities for those interested in pursuing a career in visual art. With artists offering creative input into video production, web design, museum outreach, community centers, education, therapy, fashion, advertisement, environmental design, not to mention the opportunity to work as a producing artist, we are witnessing renewed interest in the arts.
Fine Art At STAC
At St. Thomas Aquinas College we have designed the major so all students take a foundations core of courses and then choose areas of concentration depending on personal interests or career choices. An internship in an approved arts organization is also available.
Through courses in Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Digital Media, Art History and Printmaking, students find creative solutions to visual and conceptual problems while gaining familiarity with contemporary issues in the arts. All involvement with media and methods is directed toward understanding the personal, social, cultural and multicultural directions within art.
If you are interested in a creative and exciting career making use of your artistic skills and inclinations, visit our website for a listing of courses or contact a faculty member for information. Individuals with degrees in Art go on to positions in community centers, museums and art galleries, education, art therapy, the fashion industry including store and window display, film and TV including animation, the advertisement industry among others. Students also have the option to choose a career as a producing artist by going on to graduate school in the Visual Arts.
