The Arkansas State University-Beebe Art Department is currently displaying works of art by ASU-Beebe art students in the Spring 2014 Student Art Show. The exhibit will be on display through Friday, April 25.
The display includes paintings, drawings, photographs, and graphic designs by ASU-Beebe students. “We are very proud of our talented students. A lot of hard work has gone into creating these pieces of art,” said assistant professor of art, Mona Vaden.
Design students study the elements and principles of two-dimensional design, and color theory students concentrate on the principle and application of color, both fundamental and advanced. Graphic design classes combine text, images, form and color to communicate an idea, as well as familiarize themselves with the history of graphic design and best ways to combine graphic programs to create various pieces.
Students taking the digital photography I course focus on basic camera operations, computer based digital imaging and design applications; whereas, the digital photography II coursework utilizes more advanced applications in composition, camera control and editing programs.
ASU-Beebe is the only two-year college in the state of Arkansas that offers an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degree. The AFA degree has an emphasis in vocal music or instrumental music, theater, graphic design, or creative arts enterprise. This degree is a comprehensive two-year curriculum designed specifically for transfer toward a bachelor’s degree in fine arts.
The exhibit may be viewed at the England Center Art Gallery, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. through April 25. The gallery is located at the corner of Center and Orange Streets in Beebe. For more information, contact the gallery at (501) 882-4495.
