The mission of the Studio Art program is to educate visually articulate artists with a solid foundation in the conceptual, technical, historical, and professional aspects of the visual arts through a broad range of studio and academic experiences. The Studio Art program has seven specializations. These specializations provide outstanding opportunities for students to focus in a specific area such as Ceramics, Drawing, Expanded Media, Metals, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture, as well as to bridge their area of focus with other interests and mediums within the Studio program. Every area of specialization culminates in two semesters of Thesis work, a final Thesis Portfolio, and a BFA Thesis Exhibition. The Studio Art program serves a wide range of student interests and pursuits, and prepares students for professional careers as artists and arts professionals.

Areas of Specialization:


The Texas State ceramics program is broadly based, encompassing both pottery and sculpture executed in a full range of construction techniques, ceramic materials and firing methods. Ceramics students employ clay and its processes to explore how objects communicate, visually and tactilely, and to realize their personal potential for creative thinking and expression.

Career paths taken by graduates of the program have included studio art and pottery production, and teaching at the K–12 and college levels, in community art centers and in private studios.


The area of Drawing, located within the Studio Program of the Department of Art and Design, strives to strengthen the fundamental principles integral to all artistic mediums, while encouraging students to explore and refine drawing as a principle medium in itself.

Expanded Media

Expanded Media is an interdisciplinary approach to art making that includes, but is not limited to, video, sound, socially engaged projects, performance, and site-specific projects. Students are not required to concentrate in a specific medium. Instead, they are encouraged to pursue unconventional research paths and explore relationships between concept, material, and context in unexpected ways.


The Metals program at Texas State University offers comprehensive technical, critical and conceptual curriculum in the field of metal smithing. The program builds on metal smithing's rich hybrid history based in fine art, studio craft and industrial design and encourages students to explore a wide range of conceptual avenues in the creation of jewelry, functional objects, design prototypes, installation, performance and sculpture.


The goal of the painting program is to provide a solid foundation in the creative, technical and historical aspects of painting. The program encourages individual growth and development through a broad range of studio and academic experiences and through exposure to the diverse philosophical points of view of our faculty.


Printmaking, situated in the Studio Program of Art and Design, encompasses a range of methods for printing and making images, including screen printing, relief, intaglio, lithography, digital printing, monotypes, and other techniques. Intro to Printmaking covers both relief printing and screen printing. Screen printing, an intro level class, covers exclusively screen printing.


The field of sculpture continues to undergo dramatic changes in conceptual approaches, materials and techniques. The sculpture area at Texas State provides the student with an environment that is conducive to the exploration of ideas through contemporary and traditional approaches to making art.
