Express yourself through art

Self-expression is an innate aspect of being human. Art is one of the most beautiful and enduring means of doing just that. So, how do you want to express yourself? The aim of our art program is to prepare you in creative disciplines and to help you discover your own voice. Through the CUW community, you have the opportunity to explore a range of media, including drawing, graphic design, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and fibers. In other words, we have a full range of creative possibilities open to you.

Program Overview

You’ll be taking 25 credits of required coursework to give you a firm basis in drawing, color, design, art history, and aesthetics (the stuff that everyone who is serious about art needs to be aware of). But after that, you get to choose what aspects of art to focus on. We’ve got plenty of options to pick from and you’ve got 15 credits worth of courses to fill with whatever 2D or 3D electives inspire you!

What to Expect

By the time you finish this program you’ll have refined your artistic skills creating original designs, manipulating imagery, and applying design principles to visual communication. As you develop your unique artistic style, you will have a clearer understanding of how your artistic talents make a difference in the world. You will have an opportunity to showcase your work with an exhibit in the CUW Art Gallery and to assemble a professional portfolio highlighting the best of your work.
