The studio program in the Department of Art and Art History is one of the largest and most diverse in the country, with 350 students pursuing the B.F.A. or B.A. degree in studio art. The curriculum stresses both hands-on technical development and fluency in contemporary visual art discourse. The B.F.A. degree requires 20 studio courses (60 credit hours), each consisting of half-day work sessions in fully-equipped studios led by faculty artists. Time in the studio is supplemented by another 20 required academic courses in arts and sciences. Each year roughly 150 students graduate with a B.F.A. or B.A. from the Studio Division in the Department of Art and Art History.

The Senior Studio Exhibition is the first ever student exhibition to take place at Creative Research Laboratory, a new exhibition space for the Department of Art and Art History, located in East Austin at 2832 East Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, inside Flatbed World Headquarters. Creative Research Laboratory presents a year-round schedule of exhibitions of work by students and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin, and also facilitates workshops, performances, demonstrations, seminars and collaborations.
