Best Art Studies colleges in Washington 2021

“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.” -- Rene Magritte

Experience, unfold, and demystify the mystery of art by entering an art studies degree program. You’ll study the theory of art, cultivate a deep appreciation for its various forms, and explore the possibilities that art inspires. This diverse field includes instruction on the visual arts and performing arts, art history, and practical studio artistry. Perspectives are brought in from all over the world and different cultures, from women in ancient Greece to modern American Indian artists.

An art studies degree lays the foundation for students who want to develop their own artistic mind and talents. While these programs don’t focus on “doing” art, they do typically include lessons on artistic fundamentals that support the development of your artistic portfolio. Many, many art studies graduates go into teaching. But starting a career in art is also an option. There are plenty of other arts-related careers, including gallery or museum work (owning/selling/curating), arts management, nonprofit arts administration, design (interior, industrial, floral, graphic, etc.), and film/theatre.
