Studio art students

Mission and Vision


We prepare students to become creative, open-minded, ethical, informed and contributing citizens through degree programs that blend the traditional core of liberal arts and science education with the most current aesthetic, critical, conceptual, pedagogical and technical art and art history knowledge and skills.

We support students and faculty in the advancement of the visual arts through education, research, service learning and engagement at the University, in the community as well as at the regional, national, and international levels.

We assist students in developing the critical thinking, creative problem-solving, work ethic, and oral, written, and visual communication skills necessary for success in their future careers or educational goals.


We are dedicated to providing a high quality art and design education in an engaging and innovative environment.
