Program Description

Indiana University Bloomington is the flagship campus of IU’s eight campuses statewide. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks of our world-class contributions in research and in the arts. Just 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis with over 40,000 students, Indiana University Bloomington is a cultural and artistic hub of the Midwest. While IU's amazing arts and entertainment offerings play a large role in the city's cultural atmosphere, Bloomington is extraordinary in its own right. Bloomington residents and IU students, faculty, and staff form a vibrant, active community that benefits from the metropolitan qualities of a large city and the easy pace of a small town. Studio Art, founded in 1895, offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in fourteen concentrations including ceramics, drawing and painting, graphic design, metalsmithing and jewelry design, digital art and time based media, photography, fibers, printmaking, creative core, and sculpture.
