Department of Art

The Department of Art provides an environment and curriculum devoted to developing skills, stimulating critical thinking and expressing creativity within the frame-work of a Christian liberal arts program. In the freshman year art students begin a four-course visual foundations sequence in drawing and design. Students continue to complete a four-course Art History sequence and pursue visual studies in one of several areas of concentration: Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Graphic Design. Students may also choose to major in Digital Media Studies. An art major who wishes to teach art grades K-12 may receive licensure. See Teacher Licensure III. READ MORE

Through department activities students may participate in a variety of art related service projects, field trips, and social events. The University Art Gallery presents ongoing series of art exhibits highlighting a wide variety of professional artists’ work. In addition, the gallery presents an annual exhibit of student work. Graduating senior exhibitions are also held in the gallery.

Graduates of the department may continue studies at the graduate level or pursue work in a variety of areas such as digital imaging, graphics, illustration, independent studio art, museum gallery sales, photography, teaching, or web page design.

Students desiring consideration for transfer studio credit, advanced placement, department scholarships, and workships must submit a portfolio for review by the art faculty. Awards are based on this review and outstanding performance in art coursework.
