2D Fine Arts Minor

The 2D Fine Arts Minor provides studio access and focus to the university population other than majors in the Department of Art. Students will learn to creatively solve problems using design concepts, materials, and processes in one or more of the following concentrations: Photography, Printmaking, and Painting.

The minor in two-dimensional fine arts explores art processes, developing concepts and techniques relevant to the materials, methods, and critically informed aesthetic thinking inherent in making visual art in two dimensions. The minor encourages breadth of exploration balanced with a requirement for a two-course focus in one concentration.
A minimum 2.50 GPA is required for admittance to the minor and is required for all courses in the minor.  Students planning to take this minor should consult Dana Saulnier at saulnid@miamioh.edu.

For information, please contact the Department of Art, 124 Art Building, 513-529-2900.
