    Drawing In the Drawing Bachelor's Degree Program, students explore a wide variety of media and forms, both in a traditional and contemporary context. Program description Students explore a wide variety of media and forms, from traditional materials and modes of representation to video, performance, lens and screen based art projects, sound, and installation. From the beginning, students are encouraged to discover and explore what is meaningful to them through intensive studio work and research. At the early stages, this exploration is directed through observational, thematic, conceptual and research based projects. At the upper levels studio work is self-directed, with supporting input concerning research and contemporary contexts. At all levels, critiques, one-on one tutorials, and self-directed work form the core of the experience.
