Fine Arts

If you are a driven, creative and freethinking person dedicated to exploring your own expressive potential, the Fine Arts major may be for you. Flagler College offers a Fine Arts faculty dedicated to the artistic growth of each individual student. Our program combines traditional modes of study such as drawing, painting and sculpture, with the freedom to invent new forms of visual and conceptual meaning in advanced courses.

Program Description

Flagler College offers a highly regarded Fine Arts program that involves students in formally rigorous and conceptually challenging studio investigations. Fine Arts students will experience an inspired faculty of professional artists, a thorough foundations program and the freedom to explore their own creative visions. Areas of studio concentration include drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking and more.

For those students with ambitions involving graduate study, the Art Department offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. This program includes advanced studio classes designed to help young artists develop a body of work that is coherent and compelling. The BFA is an honors program within the Fine Arts Department, and each student who earns this degree will have a one-person exhibit in Carrera Gallery upon graduation.
