Art

(Drawing, Filmmaking, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture)

Director of undergraduate studies: Lisa Kereszi, 122 GRN, 432-2600, art.dus@yale.edu; art.yale.edu

Students in the Art major develop an understanding of the visual arts through a studio-based curriculum, apply fundamentals of art across a variety of media and disciplines, relate the practice of making art to the fields of art history and theory, and gain a high level of mastery of at least one artistic discipline. Students may concentrate on a medium such as painting/printmaking, sculpture, graphic design, photography, or filmmaking.

Courses for Nonmajors and Majors

Courses in Art are open to all undergraduate students. In cases where student demand for entry into a course is greater than can be accommodated, priority will be given to School of Art students and declared Art majors. The director of undergraduate studies and members of the Art faculty will be present for counseling on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. adjacent to the School of Art Gallery at Holcombe T. Green, Jr., Hall, 1156 Chapel Street. Students seeking advice about course selection or the program in Art should come at that time. Others wishing to elect Art courses should go to the first meeting of the class, where each instructor will determine the class enrollment. Classes begin on Wednesday, August 30. For courses beginning in the spring term, counseling will be held on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. adjacent to the School of Art Gallery; art classes begin on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. All Art majors are required to register with the director of undergraduate studies at the beginning of each term at the time and place listed above in order to be enrolled or to continue in the major.

Prerequisites 

The prerequisites for acceptance into the major are a sophomore review, which is an evaluation of work from studio courses taken at the Yale School of Art, and five introductory (100-level) term courses. Four of the introductory courses must have been completed at the time of the sophomore review. Visual Thinking (ART 111) and Basic Drawing (ART 114) are mandatory. At the time of the review, the student should be enrolled in the fifth 100-level prerequisite course. In exceptional cases, arrangements for a special review during the junior year may be made with the director of undergraduate studies.

Requirements of the Major 

The Art major requires fourteen term courses, including the following: (1) five prerequisite courses at the 100 level (including Basic Drawing and Visual Thinking); (2) four courses at the 200 level or above; (3) the Junior Seminar (ART 395) or Critical Theory in the Studio (ART 301); (4) the yearlong Senior Project (ART 495 and ART 496); and (5) two term courses in the history of art. Program guidelines and specific requirements for the various areas of concentration are described below.

Areas of concentration Each Art major selects an area of concentration from five possible choices: (1) graphic design, (2) painting/printmaking, (3) photography, (4) sculpture, and (5) filmmaking. Required courses for the graphic design concentration include ART 132; ART 264 and 265; ART 368 or ART 369; and ART 468 and 469. The painting/printmaking concentration requires ART 116; ART 130 or ART 230 or 231; ART 330 and 331; ART 224 or ART 356; and ART 430. Students in the photography concentration take ART 136 or ART 138; ART 237; ART 338; ART 379; and ART 401. The sculpture concentration requires ART 110; ART 345 and 346; ART 371 or ART 348; and ART 445. Required courses for the filmmaking concentration include ART 241 and 142; ART 341; ART 342; and ART 442 and 443. Students in the filmmaking concentration may substitute courses in film and media studies for the history of art requirement.

Unique to the Major

Summer fellowship Art majors are eligible for the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship for study at the Yale University Summer School of Music and Art at Norfolk, Connecticut. Applicants for the program must be officially classified as junior Art majors and be returning to Yale for two terms of their senior year. The program awards up to four course credits for work successfully completed. These credits cannot be used toward the requirements of the Art major; however, they may be counted toward the 36-course-credit graduation requirement.

Repeated and outside courses Some Art courses may be repeated for credit, with permission of both the instructor and the director of undergraduate studies. Course credits in studio art earned at other institutions may be applied toward the requirements of the major, at the discretion of the director of undergraduate studies and subject to a faculty review process.

Facilities fees All Art majors are charged a facilities access and user fee of $200 per term. Additional lab/materials fees are levied in individual courses, as specified at the end of the course description. Lab/materials fees cannot be refunded after the second week of classes.
