An art minor will give you an abbreviated experience in the historical crafts of drawing, painting, sculpture, and art history. Typically, design majors and animation illustration majors pursue an art minor because they want to learn how to make things with their hands, use materials, and learn how to use equipment and tools specific to the practice of art making.

Some classes in this minor include:
  • Drawing I
  • Design Concepts
  • Wheel Thrown Ceramics
  • Industrial Ceramics
  • Sculpture
  • Etching
  • Screen Printing
  • Lithography
  • Painting
  • Introduction to Layout

Since graduating Northwestern in 2011, I’ve earned an MFA in Ceramics from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My work has been represented by Stuart & Company Gallery since the summer of 2014 and I help manage Skybox Studios, an artist collective and studio in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood.
