ABOUT FINE ARTS (BFA)

The BFA program in Fine Arts exposes students to an array of studio practices, ideas, communities and global relationships. Our students learn to translate concepts into individual expression through composition, color, form, space and performance while developing a solid set of skills and contemporary artistic strategies. They embrace interdisciplinary approaches to thinking about visual culture. Above all, they cultivate the intellectual, conceptual, and critical thinking required to successfully launch their careers as professional artists.

Students learn all the traditional techniques relating to painting, drawing and sculpture, but they also learn to work more innovatively and are encouraged to push the boundaries of what contemporary art is. We have students working across many media, experimenting with public engagement, video, animation, photography and digital imaging. Some students appropriate images from popular culture to make politically charged statements; others re-purpose found materials and ideas from everyday life.

To learn more about the program, please visit finearts.parsons.edu or contact the Director of the BFA Program, Anthony Aziz, please send an email to: aziza@newschool.edu
