Kayla Suverkrubbe

BFA, 2015

“The UT Tyler studio art program offered really interesting classes that helped me become a more well-rounded artist. We had a class dedicated to developing artists statements and speaking publicly about our work, which greatly contributed to my being awarded a grant as I was finishing my graduate degree.” Kayla received a $12,000 Kahn Career Award to jump-start her career in New York City.

Art Beyond the Classroom

Network and gain experience outside the classroom with the Studio Art and Art History Association, which is the student organization that coordinates art exhibitions and sales, guest artist and scholar lectures, and the annual Art History Student Research Symposium.
