The Department of Art strives to instill students with a commitment to quality in the creation of art. As students achieve the necessary skills and concepts to develop a personal idiom, they are encouraged to experiment and explore a variety of points of view in creating works of art. Additionally, students develop a conceptual foundation to communicate clearly and critically about their work and the work of others; grounded in a pragmatic and practical understanding of art history and criticism.
The Art Department offers a limited number of Creative and Performing Arts Awards ranging from $500-750 per semester. If you are interested in applying for one of these awards or have any questions regarding our program, please call 970-491-6774.
