As a 3D emphasis art major at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, you will focus on creating work in glass, metal, clay, wood and many other materials to create cast, thrown, blown or assembled sculptural works, multiples, utilitarian objects and environmental installations. You have the option of working intensively in that area and with faculty. However, all 3D emphasis art students are required to take courses in the 2D or graphic-design areas.
Creative professionals are valued employees in every organization. We prepare you for careers specifically in or related to the visual arts. With a degree in art and design, you can be employed in commercial or private firms, government agencies or educational institutions. Some of our graduates even choose to be self-employed, professional artists or craftspeople.
Some job titles in art and design-related fields include art director, museum curator, gallery director, art program director, crafts instructor, art fabricator, gaffer, studio technical, studio artist, studio assistant, concept artist, art educator and art administrator.
3D art students have many opportunities to display their artwork on campus and in the community. The Carlsten Art Gallery at the Noel Fine Arts Center displays students' artwork in the annual Juried Student Exhibition each fall. The Student Juried Exhibition is judged by an outside professional and results in awards and scholarships given to outstanding students.
All students are welcome to join one our department student groups. Organizations meet on a regular basis and contribute actively to student life by sponsoring trips and special events, and raising awareness of aesthetic issues.
The Department of Art and Design is housed in the beautiful Noel Fine Arts Center. Its facilities offer a variety of photography, drawing and painting, and printmaking studios that can aid students in developing their creative skills and working efficiently and effectively.
