Fine Arts

Students working on projects in the Ceramics studio.

The Fine Arts emphasis within the Studio Arts Major nurtures the individual voice of each student which is inevitably linked to the broader concerns of our culture. This multifaceted emphasis is divided into 5 areas of concentration. For more information please click on each of the following areas.

Students who elect to pursue the Fine Arts emphasis at Loyola Marymount University will find themselves in spacious studios with ample opportunity to explore a wide variety of artistic forms of expression; painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, and photography. The fine arts facilities in the Department of Art and Art History are some of the finest in Southern California; students who are registered for studio classes have 24 hour access during the academic year. Additionally, the Thomas P. Kelly, Jr. Student Gallery offers students the opportunity to exhibit their work throughout the academic year in a variety of student run and juried shows. Past Fine Arts exhibitions can be seen here.

The 4-year model plan of the Fine Arts Emphasis can be found within the Studio Arts section of the Academic Bulletin.
