Although Johns Hopkins University does not offer a degree program in art, the Homewood Art Workshops provide a studio environment in which undergraduates can pursue their creative interests and earn academic credit in a visual arts program. Students can now minor in visual arts, as well.
Courses in drawing and painting develop observational skills and techniques in the beginning student. Courses in cartooning, design, and photography balance studio work with research and critical analysis. Through classes offered by the Homewood Art Workshops, students can enrich their lives while diversifying and broadening their educational experience.
Students wishing to take more advanced fine arts courses are encouraged to take advantage of Hopkins' cooperative programs with the following colleges in the Baltimore area: Goucher College, Loyola College, Morgan State University, College of Notre Dame, Towson University, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Similar arrangements are in effect with our neighbor a mile and a half to the south, the Maryland Institute, College of Art.
