Fine Arts and Design

Everyone says you have a gift. You can draw a perfect circle freehand. You design your own holiday cards, construct igloos with sugar cubes, and model Civil War fortresses with toothpicks. You design your own clothes with an individual flair. When your family decided to build a new home, you spent hours drawing floor plans on graph paper. Maybe you just love art--drawing, painting, printing, or studying art history. As a creative person with a unique vision, you see yourself creating environments that best suit the people who work and live in them. Iowa State offers a broad range of classes so you can design a visual studies or art curriculum that gives expression to your gifts and professional goals.
