Visual Arts Curriculum

UCSD students are engaged in an articulated visual arts program that provides a basis for lifelong learning through the involvement and appreciation of the arts. Visual arts include perceiving, comprehending, and evaluating the visual world; viewing and understanding the visual arts; developing and communicating imaginative and inventive ideas; and creating art. A variety of projects and tasks are provided to build understanding of the concepts and skills. Students use that understanding to express themselves in the visual arts classes.
