Artists at Hampshire are in a unique position to create work in a multidisciplinary environment that expresses their personal visions.
Rather than limiting themselves to one or another medium, studio arts concentrators are exposed early to a variety of different tools and materials that they may use to express themselves and explore their artistic voice within a liberal arts context.
A broad array of studio courses, critical theory, art history, and a portfolio of independent work are required components of a studio arts concentration.
This type of training not only enables students to overlap disciplines and technologies, but actually allows new forms to emerge as well. Consequently, Hampshire graduates in studio art have gained admission to the top M.F.A. programs nationally and internationally.
Alums are currently exhibiting at premier galleries and museums in New York and worldwide.

BARBARA LEE: That poses the kind of questions and dilemmas before us. There are many questions that have to be asked..the kind of terrain ahead of us in a country we don?t know, how much collateral loss will we be inflicting in terms of innocent women and
children? Loss of life is loss of life. The Congress needs to ask these questions, force the administration
to answer these questions. That does not mean that we, and I, are not unified. I'm sure I will hear from the
administration, I'm on the foreign affairs committee.
