studio art: photography

Clubs & Organizations…

Singing, theater and other groups are open to Art students and others interested in participating.

Art Faculty…

All of our Art faculty members share a teaching philosophy which emphasizes respect for personal expression and individual creativity.

Photography facilities on the first floor of Reichhold Hall include studio space, a film-changing room, a darkroom with 10 enlargers and a high-quality inkjet printer, and a new iMac lab with 12 new 24-inch computers along with a film scanner, projector and laser printer. Here, photography and graphic design students can use specialty programs such as the Adobe Creative Suite to create professional quality projects and gain experience using the programs they will depend on in their careers.

As photography majors, students start with the technical basics of cameras, lenses, and film processing. Intermediate courses introduce students to digital imaging and color photography; these skills are refined in advanced courses where students grow as artists by also expanding their knowledge of printing techniques, development techniques, and specialized light-sensitive materials.

Please see the college catalog for specific requirements.

Gladys Greenbaum Meyers Juried Student Art Exhibition

Each year the Fine and Performing Arts Department offers every student the opportunity to enter the Juried Student Art Exhibition. This annual exhibit showcasing student work is made possible by a significant gift from Gladys Greenbaum Meyers '39, an avid and longtime supporter of the arts.

Capstone Project: The Senior Art Exhibition

Every senior completes a Capstone project, a culmination of work in their fields of study that allows them to demonstrate a deep understanding of a body of knowledge and perspectives informed by that knowledge. Each year during the spring semester, senior art students exhibit their strongest works in the Mugar Art Gallery. This exhibition is a required component of the Capstone Experience for all art majors.
