Fine Arts at WSU Tri-Cities
The arts are vital to cultural expression; they enrich our lives while challenging and broadening our views of the world. The Fine Arts faculty foster an educational environment that encourages creativity, individual growth and meaningful expression.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts program is designed to open doors into the world of visual expression and intellectual development. In particular, we encourage students to sample a variety of art disciplines and make an informed choice about their direction in art.
Students with a bachelors of fine arts should have a working knowledge of the processes and media that produce works of visual art, including a clear understanding of the terms: subject matter, form, and content, as well as specialized technical, conceptual and imaginative expertise in a given field. They should be able to articulate in visual form a range of approaches, from a representational point of view through a more conceptual focus, make critical judgments about contemporary art and culture and have an acceptable command of verbal and written expression.
