Visual Arts



Our Visual Art program offer beginners and advanced artists alike ample opportunity for personal exploration and public recognition. Small classes allow for deep engagement with faculty and fellow students; while five studios offer plenty of space to work in ceramics, drawing and painting, advanced placement art, photography, printmaking, needle arts, and introductory art courses. The work of our Visual Art students is publicly displayed in one of the continuous exhibition areas located around campus.

As is the case with many of our other programs, we take advantage of our proximity to major metropolitan areas to continue the learning off campus. Our studio art classes typically take field trips to New York City museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA, the Frick Collection, and International Center for Photography.
