Students learn creative problem-solving skills through a curriculum featuring two- and three-dimensional design, drawing, painting, art history, graphic design, sculpture, ceramics, photography and printmaking. The major allows students to focus on either two- or three-dimensional studio work, and leads to a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Students graduate with a set of competitive skills that include:

SPArC lecture series continues with 2013-14 lineup
Hosted by Saint Joseph's Art Department, the Speakers, Performers, Artists and Culture (SPArC) Lecture Series launches its 2013-14 season with another fantastic list of visiting artists and performers. On September 25, singer-songwriter Samuel James brings his blues and sweat-pouring soul performance to the central lawn; on October 24, Maine-based visual artist, writer and curator Lauren Fensterstock visits for a presentation; and on November 13, marine photojournalist, natural history filmmaker and expedition leader Mauricio Handler leads a discussion about his work.
In the Stone Chapel, tucked behind Mercy Hall, freshman Nate Winter and Scott Fuller, chair of the Art Department, look over Nate’s most recent series of pottery work.
Students from art professor Chris Sullivan’s spring 2013 colloquium course have transformed the College into an art gallery for the summer. Coordinated by five students, The Blue Frame show presents 23 original works of art submitted by students and others associated with the College.
Fine arts major YuPing Hu helped design the set for the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine’s production of Sleeping Beauty, which ran from October 19 to October 28. Hu enjoys service learning because, she says, "I meet many different people and learn to step outside of my own box."
