Visual Art

The Visual Art Department at Hopkins offers courses in a variety of studio arts, including a Fine Art Studio sequence for advanced study, as well as a range of courses in media arts.  Students display their work in the Keator Gallery and informally in the balcony atrium in Thompson Hall.  

Drawing, painting, and printmaking take place in spacious studios on the third floor of Thompson Hall, while ceramics, architecture, graphic design, wood arts, and digital photography occur in the new studios sharing an outdoor patio on the first floor of Thompson Hall.  Video classes and web design take place in a second computer lab on campus.  These experiential classes are supplemented with theory studies in film and art history.
The Keator Gallery hosts five exhibitions each year, featuring work by professional artists, students and the arts faculty as well as a Hopkins community-wide exhibit.  The Keator Gallery is located in Baldwin Hall and is open during school days from 8am-4pm.  All exhibits are free and open to the public. Information: (203) 397-1001.
