In the Visual Art Program, students investigate the beauty and richness of God’s good creation through intense studio exploration both in traditional technique and contemporary approach. These studio programs work in concert with Art History and liberal arts courses to develop a comprehensive understanding of visual language and our visual heritage.
Our curriculum prepares students for a variety of pursuits, including studio artist, work in commercial and professional disciplines, and graduate study.
Art internships with local businesses provide students with on-the-job experience. Internships are arranged according to individual career objectives.
