In the Fine Arts Department, our undergraduate departmental representatives are divided into the two subfields of Art History and Studio Art. These student representatives are here to offer help to majors, minors or any other student interested in the Fine Arts Program.

Meet Your UDRs
Hello! My name is Anna Ginsburg and I'm a junior from Hong Kong majoring in Studio Arts and Environmental Studies. I have taken sculpture, painting and drawing courses at Brandeis but I have the most experience as a painter. On campus, I'm a member of the women's varsity fencing team, as well as the club Quidditch team and fencing club. I'm also a member of the Brandeis Improv collective. When I'm not in the studio/fencing room/field/music room/catching my breath, I like to spend time in Boston, or hike and swim when the weather allows. I especially like to take my sketchbook outside to draw from nature and what I see in the city. Please feel free to reach out to me by email or on campus if you would like to talk or ask questions about the Fine Arts department!
My name is Qiang and I am a junior major in Art history, philosophy, and IGS. I am interested in Contemporary Art. I especially love minimalism and abstract minimalism. I love to explore the hidden messages behind the simple paints. I also love Andy Warhol. I love exploring different museums in my spare time. My favorite museums around Boston are the DeCordova and the ICA. Mass MOCA is also a great museum with so many amazing exhibitions and new ideas even it is a bit far from the campus. I am a member of the SCRAM and also the co-president of the Fashion Design Club. I am very open to talking to new people about the department, so don't hesitate to contact me!
