From Classroom to Career
The Student Voice Project (SVP) is a collaboration between academic advisers and students in the UW School of Art + Art History + Design. SVP develops programming to help you recognize that your learning and experiences in the classroom relate directly to skills you will use to develop your career.
SVP is committed to dispelling the myth that learning in the visual arts limits the scope of professional opportunities for our graduates. Students who major in art, art history and design graduate with the following:
- Practiced problem-finding and problem-solving skills
- Expertise in visual literacy
- Polished presentation and communication skills
- Collaboration and leadership experience
- Research methods and the ability to complete resulting projects
- Motivated for and by critical feedback
- Ability to network, create and engage in community
Online Parnassus Gallery
The Online Parnassus Gallery is a virtual space dedicated to exhibiting UW student work.
Traditionally a space for student work, curated by students, the Parnassus Art Gallery has been closed along with the rest of the School due to COVID-19 safety guidelines. The Student Voice Project student leadership team has transitioned the gallery to a virtual format in response to the temporary loss of the physical space.
Exhibitions will be released on an ongoing basis, so check back often for new work.
If you are interested in showing work in the Online Parnassus Gallery or participating in the gallery leadership team, please email the Gallery.
