Art is the study of the various creative means of expressing human thoughts, interests, attitudes, emotions and ideas. It involves both fine and commercial art.
Students majoring in art at BYU-Idaho can choose either a traditional major or a comprehensive major (BFA or BA/BS) where they emphasize in one of the following: graphic design, illustration, photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, drawing or printmaking.
Artists develop intellectual and technical skills in many different areas. For example, an art major choosing an emphasis in an area of fine art will expand their focus of knowledge in a different way than one choosing an emphasis in commercial art. Whatever emphases students pursue, the art foundation courses give them a base of knowledge in the art world. The foundation courses teach principles of drawing and composition, color, life drawing, ceramics, and sculpture.
Art majors are usually interested in aesthetics and self-expression. Artists are creative and curious. They are also able to work independently and adjust to close public scrutiny and criticism.
