About

The practice of art is among the most fundamental forms of individual and cultural expression. In the Department of Studio Arts at the University of Pittsburgh, you will explore the visual arts through a program of studio courses designed to:

  • Develop awareness of the formal and expressive means of creating art.
  • Enhance technical skills.
  • Expand critical thinking and evaluation capabilities.
  • Probe the significance of making art in today's world.

Because the Department of Studio Arts is an integral part of the University's Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, you will develop as an artist and a thinker while receiving a liberal arts education at one of the country's top 25 public universities.
