THE VISUAL ARTS AND ART HISTORY ANIMATE THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES
The visual arts comprise the study of the variety of means of visually expressing human thoughts, interests, attitudes, emotions, and ideas. Artists use many different media such as oils, watercolors, acrylics, pastels, clay, plaster and computers. Visual artists create abstract works and images of objects, people, nature, typography and events.
The Art Department offers several options of study. The B.F.A. (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree in studio art and the B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) degree in art history, art education, or studio art are all professional degrees, leading to related art careers.
The Art Department is proud to host the Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition
