BFA Art Practice & Art Practice Minor 

The Textile Arts coursework is part of the BFA Art Practice curriculum in the School of Art + Design.  It’s a flexible degree that allows you to design an individual path of study based on your interests and goals. Students can combine courses in sewing, weaving, surface design, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and video to develop a portfolio that reflects their creative aspirations.  The degree culminates with a group exhibition in the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
The Art Practice Minor is a great option for students outside of Art Practice who want to use Textile Arts courses to complement their degree.  This is a popular option for costume-focused students in the Theater and Film departments, Business students interested in apparel and product design, as well as Liberal Arts students interested in fashion studies.  
For more information on these classes and how they might fit into your degree path or how to transfer into the program,  contact Alison Heryer at
