Students undertake the study of art studio for many reasons, including self-expression, to learn an artistic process and to pursue a vocation in the field. Studio course offerings at Bloomsburg University include Graphic Design, Drawing, Fabric Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture. Students, both in studio art and those with other majors but similar creative interests, may develop skills that will be a deep source of personal satisfaction now and throughout life. The latter takes place particularly in the critiques, the in-depth class discussions of the work the class has accomplished.

In the studio courses, the students learn the discipline and technical processes for creating art as well as the aesthetic principles associated with that medium.
