Art Studio can be taken more than once (but not more than 3 times) for credit in the Fine Arts Concentration. For example: if a student takes Art Studio, ART450, with an Art Historical venue, no matter what area they select after that be it in the 2-D area or 3-D area, they would enroll in Art Studio, ART 451, and after that it would be ART 452. Once Art Studio has been taken three times, the student can no longer enroll in this class.

*  If class is taken at the required level, it cannot be used in the concentration.
