Muti-Media Option

ceramic

The Multi–Media degree provides students with a historical context for art and design, and skills and techniques related to both hand and digital craft. Students cultivate and create their own digital presence and body of work. This degree allows students to work across various media, and to combine traditional techniques with contemporary and cutting-edge approaches to artmaking, such as 3D printing and VR. The program culminates in a capstone project undertaken in concert with a diverse peer group of interdisciplinary makers.

Mission StatementFacility
The Plymouth State University Muti-Media program is a dynamic program that focuses on the foundations of concept and technique, which together form the backbone of successful artmaking. Because solid technical skills are necessary to make the most out of good artistic ideas, and innovative technologies offer new frontiers for three-dimensional artists, the program emphasizes both traditional meth­­­­ods and new media to develop well-informed artists. You’ll explore how history and theory inform art making, art criticism, and art appreciation, so you’ll be able to articulate your artistic vision within the context in which you live and work. And when you graduate, you’ll be prepared for the next step in life, whether it be graduate school, a career as an independent working artist, or a career in another profession.
