GSA’s Visual Art program includes studio classes in three concentrations: (1) drawing and painting, (2) sculpture and ceramics and (3) traditional printmaking. Students attend studios in all three areas throughout the program. Special workshops are conducted by distinguished visiting artists. Students view and learn about the work of these artists, as well as that of their own GSA faculty. Instructors and students critique and reflect on their works-in-progress individually and in groups, both in oral and written formats. Studio sessions are augmented by field trips to museums and galleries, as well as slide presentations. Students learn about writing artist statements, art professions and careers, and portfolio preparation for college applications. A juried gallery exhibition of student work is displayed on the final day of the program and other student work is presented in an open house format in the rest of the studios.
