The mission of the Art Program is to provide students with the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge leading toward deeper appreciation of the visual arts, individualized expression, and professional preparation.

Art courses satisfy General Education requirements in the Fine Arts, foster outcomes in critical thinking skills, integrated knowledge, global awareness, and visual communications. Along with emphasis areas in contemporary digital applications and studio practice, students are afforded opportunities with complementary curriculums in Media Studies and Art Education.


Program Distinctions
  •  Art Majors Exhibit; students majoring in art with studio emphasis enjoy the opportunity to exhibit their art work as a component of the capstone course, Art Majors Seminar.
  • Internship; art majors meeting the requirements of the Digital Art track emphasis area prepare for real world experiences through on site internship opportunities.
  •  Lucrectia Begley Gallery; located in the Slider Humanities Building, the gallery features a diverse range of art exhibits by local, regional and national artists, as well as student work, to enrich college and community interaction.
  • In addition, art program faculty members are actively involved in their fields through exhibits, commissions, grants, and are dedicated to teaching effectiveness. Students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular art activities and travel opportunities.


Why choose Art?

In a rapidly changing world of technological advances, social interactions, and identity, certain sensibilities remain essential. Cultivating a deeper understanding of the contexts, meanings, and practices of art within a liberal arts education enables meaningful career tracks, artistic endeavors, and valuable perspectives beneficial for life-long learning. Through art one has the chance to participate in a larger dialogue both personal and universal, whether for individualized creative expression or deeper appreciation of a natural and necessary part of the human condition.


"The Lindsey Wilson College Art Department gave me the tools and knowledge to take what I wanted to do and push it to its limits; to open up new horizons and explore new technologies. The art department gave me an experience that will continue to aid me in almost everything I do after college." Joseph Meza 2015

"Unlike many other art programs, at Lindsey the professors develop a close teacher-student relationship with each of their students." Isaac Coty 2015
