Studio Art

Gallery

"KSC helped to unlock an understanding of what art is and does. It created an understanding for how sculpture functions in society while also instilling an understanding of processes and ideas for how artwork can be created." —Miles Warner

The Studio Art option trains students in the creative, technical, and practical aspects of the visual arts, beginning with a broad-based background in multiple mediums and a solid foundation in art history and criticism. As the student’s study progresses, he or she will begin to specialize and develop greater expertise in whatever medium he or she finds most rewarding. More about Studio Art


Graphic Design

"As a graphic designer, I love what I do; I never stop designing, whether it's for a class, on my own, or analyzing designs in my head. Relaxing, hanging out with friends, and listening to music all helps to rejuvenate my design abilities, which also help inspire me to complete my next project.” —Victoria White
