Department of Art & Design
An art minor will give you an abbreviated experience in the historical crafts of drawing, painting, sculpture, and art history. Typically, design majors and animation illustration majors pursue an art minor because they want to learn how to make things with their hands, use materials, and learn how to use equipment and tools specific to the practice of art making.
Since graduating Northwestern in 2011, I’ve earned an MFA in Ceramics from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My work has been represented by Stuart & Company Gallery since the summer of 2014 and I help manage Skybox Studios, an artist collective and studio in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood.
What will I learn?
You will develop an appreciation for aesthetics, become detail oriented, and learn to solve problems.
