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, professional preparation, and individualized creative expression.

The Art Program provides a broad sequence of art courses for partial fulfillment of General Education Requirements, Associate of Arts degree, Art minor and a Bachelor of Arts in Art Degree. Within the liberal arts tradition, students develop a foundation of knowledge and skills in studio art and art history.

Program Distinctions

Art Club

The Art Club, which is open to all students, includes periodic trips to regional galleries and museums.

Trips to view collections have ranged from the J.B. Speed museum in Louisville, Ky.; The Frist Art Musuem, Cheekwood, and the Parthenon in Nashville, Tenn.; the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga, Tenn.; The Chicago Art Institute; the Hite Museum in Atlanta; and visits to Lexington, Ky., Memphis, Tenn., Cincinnati, and Washington D.C.

The Lucretia C. Begley Gallery

Located in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center, the Begley Gallery features work of regional and national artists. The Senior Art Show 2gallery provides an exciting schedule of exhibits during the academic year. Student work, including an annual "Art Majors Seminar," is exhibited as well.

Why choose Art?

Do you love to draw, paint or design? A major in Art offers numerous career opportunities ranging from a Fine Artist creating paintings, sculptures and illistrations displayed in museums and art galleries to a to a Multimedia Artist creating images for film, video and other types of electronic media. The idea of the "starving artist" is outdated because the modern artist has a large selection of art-focused opportunities with the right training and talent.
